It's hard to believe that one man could have read so much! The breadth of this survey makes it a fantastic resource, although many of Carson's notes are rather brief. However, the format of it is truly horrible. Finding what you want to know is difficult because of the lack of simple things like paragraphs. A star-rating scheme or similar would make this much more user-friendly.

Now in its 6th edition. I just love this book, Carson's pithy and sometimes withering comments are great. Mostly his comments are one or two liners. He does comment on a great number of commentaries as well as commentary sets. Most helpful is his summary of recommendations at the end. After that I check out the reviews on Amazon.
