His critique of certain ahadith, especially against Qur'anic concepts, revives a more "grounded" (in the rationalistic sense - though I do not necessarily mean that this is a superior sense, that requires more study and reflection) view of the status and abilities of the Prophet and 12 imams of the Prophet's household.
Recommended read for those who want a taste - as this book is short and leaves the reader with many questions - of the question of "ghuluww" in the Shi'i religious realm, and the elasticity of that term.
Readers may want to supplement this with some of Hossein Modarressi's work.
