This really is a very good book. A little overwhelming on first read but I've had it for several years now and I find myself constantly revisiting the various chapters for guidance.
The difference between this and other books on the subject is that this one nurtures your understanding on how to tackle various mixing issues, rather than just the usual "try this and if it doesn't work play around a bit". The chapter on reverb, for example, breaks the task down based on what you want to achieve by adding reverb (size, sustain, blend etc.) and then gives clear guidance on how to achieve these things whilst still leaving scope for your own taste.
I highly recommend this alongside Paul White's Producers Manual as useful and accessible texts on mixing. Plenty of depth and practical advice in both.
