Does the book "The Cloud at Your Service" talk about building a cloud infrastructure using open source technologies ? Could you please give a brief description of it here ?

Here they linked to the content of the book.
And the manning-page says:
It shows you practical ways to work with current services like Amazon's EC2 and S3.

So I have my doubts that you'll be teached to build your own infrastructure.

you can build your own cloud infrastructure by using openNebula or Ecalyptus or UEC(Ubuntu Enterprise Cloud) which is also based on Ecalyptus

I have read about setting up one using centOS-Eucalyptus but wasn't very comprehensive. Thought this book would help me on it. Apart from that the book seems to cover pretty much all the relevant topics on Cloud computing. Topics like "The business case for cloud computing" and "Practical considerations " should be contain really useful pieces of information.

I think it will be talking about the economics of using the cloud not a case for how to use an open source to setup your own cloud infra.
my advice to you in order to do this, you should target the open source project web site for a tutorial or documentation of how to setup it, and if you found it not comprehensive or difficult to follow, you can register in their mailing list or collaborate on their forum.
