Palmer's book is a helpful guide to the so-called Five Points of Calvinism. He tells us at the very beginning of his book that there is much more to Calvinism than these 5 points, and that they were not invented by Calvin. It is also worth pointing out that they are a response to a submission to the Church of Holland and not an original statement by Calvinist believers.
I found Palmer's presentation compelling. I think that if you believe the Bible is authoritative, he has shown that the so-called five points are its teaching [along with much, much else].
Palmer's short account of Calvin's perseverance despite opposition and all sorts of illnesses is also a worthwhile feature of this book.
If you want to pursue this topic further, I also recommend Loraine Boettner's Reformed Doctrine of Predestination and Wayne Grudem's Systematic Theology for more detailed treatments.

Palmer's book provides a great study on predestination. Though it is such a hard concept to grasp, it is perfectly clear that scripture teaches it. Why so many sincere Christians want to try to deny its reality is trully a knock on God's soverignty. Once you study the facts and look at free willers arguments you see that the doctrine of free will is nothing more than humanism. To anyone who thinks other wise I challenge you to read this book. It does a great job of showing how absurd an Arminian's arguments are without being insensitive to the Arminian. A good book to add to your Christian collection.
