I'm teaching an undergraduate course from the book covering the first three chapters. I like the material chosen by the author and how the book is organized. There are relatively few errors - I found two - and there are worked solutions to the exercises. My major complaint is that for an expensive hardcover, the make quality is very bad. The pages started coming apart after one month of use.

Besides sticker shock from the absurd price, all readers can look forward to is a watered down version of one of the author's earlier books. This incarnation appears to have been hastily written and lightly edited (if at all) -- the inevitable result: plenty of typos and even a few howlers.
