This is an important book: It is the most sustained defense of a minimalist conception of truth in print. It systematically deals with all of the usual objections to minimalist views of truth (redundancy theories and their ilk), in most cases providing devastating replies to them; and it contains interesting things to say about many issues that are or have been thought to be connected to the topic of truth. Its arguments are lucid and of high quality, and it is broad in scope. I recommend it with enthusiasm. (Hartry Field, Philosophy of Science)

Much of this book is a fairly technical discussion of a number of challenges to the minimalist account and associated issues. Written for others in the field of epistemology, a good knowledge of the prior literature and formal logic is really needed to follow all the argument. Horwich is a good enough writer, however, that his text gives a good idea of his arguments.
As Horwich points out, this view has considerable implications for many areas of philosophy.
