It retains the lightweight but fine quality paper of the more expensive versions, which is useful for scribbling notes on the little blank space available. It is almost as easy to carry as the Pocket Edition. However, it is a paperback.. It will not last as long as the hardback versions.
This edition is very good at what it claims to be: "The Study Edition". I consider the current NJB to be the most accurate translation of the bible - this edition has many optional texts included. The language none the less retains a good linguistic style.
If you want powerful English or Good Literature, try the various versions of the RSV / NRSV. For easy reading, try the Good News or perhaps the Collins version.
