The appearance of the second ICC commentary on James, almost 100 years after the publication in 1916 of the first by James Hardy Ropes is an event worthy of comment ... Allison has certainly ... given ample expression to the multiple skills a successful commentator requires, whether philological, historical, or interpretative, all of which built upon a range of knowledge and a sensitivity to the wider religious setting. -- James Carleton Paget, University of Cambridge Early Christianity Vol. 5 A monumental commentary. -- Rainer Metzner Biblica (Bloomsbury translation) This substantial commentary on James from Allison is superior to other works due to its breadth and thoroughness ... The textual interpretation is conventional in the best sense ... and the documentation and development of secondary literature in the footnotes is immense, a rare and unique resource. Theologische Literaturzeitung (Bloomsbury translation) With this commentary Dale Allison has set a new milestone in research on the Letter of James. He is due credit for his detailed discussion of existing secondary literature, upon which he expands and offers room to approach existing problems from different angles. Studien zum Neuen Testament und seiner Umwelt (Bloomsbury translation)

The book is well managed, the detailed work is good readable on 790pp an the. Also i am not convinced by the main thesis, i think this is the best technical commentary on James esp. compared to Painter, Moo, Burchard and Pokes.

If you are at all familiar with the rest of Allison's works you will know that this commentary is written in a humble manner. Allison admits when the evidence is scant and recognizes that he does not hold all the answers but will point future scholars in the right direction.
