There is also a lack of balance. A hundred pages are spent outlining secondary sources, while less than half that for primary sources. Given the equivalent ease of physical access to both from the FHL as well as the greater importance and validity of the primary sources, this is a distorted perspective. More space should have been spent upon the reading and interpreting the primary records. The exception to the sketchy treatment is the coverage of censuses in the appendices which seems to be a fairly thorough overview of the subject. The appendices also contain a nice French vocabulary. Overall, it's probably a good book for beginning/intermediate Québec genealogists, but nothing new or exciting for those who have working Québec for a few years.
I got a bonus from the book in that it provides timelines, history, and sources for other documents available.
This is an excellent reference for the French-Canadian researcher.
