Perhaps this all sounds hyperbolic; the book isn't perfect, but since nothing is ever "perfect", I can honestly say this is one of the closer things to perfect I've read. It could use more examples from more specialty/sub-fields--or at least, an on-line resource with that, it seems like they have a good eye/experience in successful applications and having examples covering more of the vast variety in today's academic jobs would be super-useful.
It could also do, perhaps, with some "big points" summaries, or checklists (with page numbers, so that it doesn't have to be a stand-alone dumbed-down version), to help you when you're frenetically searching back for a bit of advice or half-remembered guideline while deadlines approach.
Bottom line: get it, read it!
