Unfortunately its scope is so limited that entire areas of the program are left out or only briefly introduced (3D, perspective, creating transparency to name a few). A book for beginners should be limited to the essentials but a fundamental concept like "transparency" i.e. overlapping objects / text should be discussed in depth since it's part of nearly everything created with vectors. It certainly deserves more attention than the one overly-simple example of an opacity mask we get here.
But despite its limitations the book offers a simple, well-ordered examination of the most basic uses of Illustrator CS5 and I highly recommend it for that; it's the best book I've seen if you're completely new to vector drawing. For everyone else who's ready to see just how complex (and beautiful) vector art can be I recommend Real World Adobe Illustrator CS5 by Mordy Golding or Sharon Steuer's series of "WOW" books.
