Basically, this is one of Wizards of the Coast's worst supplements ever. It really is just a rehash of previous material with very little added. It's a disturbing trend and it does nothing to improve Wizards' detereorating reputation.
What is perhaps most troubling is the appalling editing. They apparently forgot to decide some spells' levels, lengths, etc. It's a little distracting, but when your main focus is the huge spell list, you're not that concerned until something goes a little awry and then you've got your DM to decide what he'd like best. What's worse is that the book has no index and the pages have not been cross-indexed during the editing, meaning several instances of "refer to page xx" where the "xx" has not been replaced with the relevant page number(!). Very, very poor. But wait, there's even worse to come. So sloppy is the cutting and pasting from previous material, they haven't even updated some of it to 3.5 from 3rd edition. I think that's inexcusably bad.
I appreciated the surplus of druid images, though! I like seeing the generic druid all around the Complete Divine, but I did notice a lack of other images... the generic ranger hasn't shown up yet in any book, and the cleric is mysteriously missing most of the time. Hmm.
Overall, a dreadful supplement with virtually no redeeming features.
