It's nicely written and handsomely laid out, and seems quite up-to-date (with information about playing on the Internet and the current [weak] state of Go-playing software).
I have over 250 chess books and consider myself quite knowledgeable in that field. This is, however, my first Go book. I fully acknowledge not having the experience to definitively judge quality as well as a long-time tournament player or teacher could. But having been around the block in life and having looked at a lot of Go titles before choosing, I can pretty strongly say that you could do a LOT worse.
In its price range, this fine new book could well become THE one to have.
The history of the game section, which takes up 1/3 or so of the book on the other hand, was very well written and quite engaging.
In short, if you want to learn basic strategy, there are many better books out there.
