I don't think that book will have enough depth. If it's just a small office network, you could maybe just follow through with the CEH. This will make sure that the most common/ genral security threats are covered.
I would assume that for an office your biggest things would be: making your netowrk fast and easy to use, and making sure your users are not stupid/ downloading from the piratebay or kazaa or whatever. And take out what you don't need, unless you know how to secure it.
Once you've covered the genral areas, then you can just spend some time and get to know your network, and deal with more obscure things.
Edit: disgruntled employees are either out of scope or unrelated. If you have a small network, you will probably know the people and be able to talk to them. You don't even have to worry about physical access as much, because again, you know them.

dex, I agree that more in-depth resources are available. The point of my post was to merely give him a starting point. The original post gave insufficient data on what was needed to fulfill the assignment requirements, so I didn't spend more than just a few seconds to point him in the right direction.
