This should be treated as a supplement book, it doesn't replace the PHB or Dungeon Master's Guide, it's just there to make rules checking more convenient.
This is not however a new version of 4th Edition D&D, it is just an updated and better laid out version of the rules, in short if you have all the main books and have limited funds then you do not need this book, if however you have the funds to add it to your collection or are starting out with 4th Ed D&D then this is a great book to have.
Its a good concise collection of 'the rules' that means that the PHB1/2/3/Adventurers Vault/etc can go away during play.
Its already been useful following a "grab" argument.
If you don't have the PHBs then I'd suggest going that route first - they have much more than just Rules in them (and they have many more classes and races than the new Essentials players books) but if you are looking for a way to stop your back breaking when you carry your stuff from game to game - this rocks.
Well, I rambled a bit but I think I got over it :)
