One cannot bravely read it page after page (unless you are a seasoned student and are used to this type of material) - it is for dipping in short doses only. Luckily the chapters are not too long and sensibly sub-divided, the index is excellent and the main terms are highlighted.
So far the book has provided me with the majority of answers for my first assignment and gave me excellent definitions and descriptions of lexical words, functional words and inserts. Let's hope that it will be just as useful in the future.
