For beginners, it is a compact introduction, including exercises, to the classical syntactic theory of combinators with some pointers to their models and their relation with λ-calculus. More advanced readers may find in the book much information on the connections between combinators and non-classical and substructural logics that are now a prominent topic in several areas, from philosophical logic to theoretical computer science, information that is mostly scattered through the research literature.
