Unfortunately wading through it is something of a chore... it's rather dry. Unless you're serious about "studying" bridge, this book probably isn't for you. Try "Card Play Technique" by Victor Mollo -- it's equally thorough, covers many of the same topics and is written in wonderfully engaging and humorous prose.
I'm mostly a spades player, saving Bridge for later in my life. This book applies to Spades nearly as much as it does to Bridge. In fact, for any serious Spades player, I really recommend this book.
Learn how to play Bridge from a genius. Learn how to play from Louis Watson.
Because the book was written early in the century, the writing style is slightly strange to modern readers, but shouldn't pose a problem for the interested student.
