Very complete. We use IBM VS2 Fortran on a Z/System, which is an extended Fortran 77. The IBM docs of course cover everything but learning from them is almost impossible. We had a number of Fortran books on hand, all of which left out key features of the language. This one covers everything that's in the spec including some material that some of our very experienced programmers didn't know. Don't count on it for IBM-specific extensions--it treats the standard language--but it pretty much covers all of the standard language.
This isn't the book to get if you want to learn to program, but if you're already competent in another language and need ride the dinosaur, this is pretty much a must-have.
