That said, this is best looked at as a sort of MCO/NCO for gambits. It has very complete coverage of various gambits, along with some analysis. The analysis is questionable in some lines (for example, e4 c6 d4 d5 e5 c5 in the caro-kann advance schiller claims is good for white, whereby most sources (gm nigel davies for example) say black has full compensation for the pawn).
This is best used as an idea book, and for gambit players who need such a work, I guess it's not bad. Yes, it's a database dump, and yes the analysis is probably pretty sketchy (the author is only a NM), but there are not a whole lot of other gambit resources out there, so if you need something of this nature, than this is probably your only choice.
