If you want a good introduction to the Qu'ran I recommend it highly, but make sure you check other sources also.
Please beware that as the title says it is the definitive english edition and just that. I got mislead by the subtext that says complete and unabridged with full color reproductions! excepte for one page of sura al-fatiha and another for few lines of Iqra bisme I could not find any reproductions or other additions (unless I dont know where to look). The translation is that of Yusuf Ali
I am still looking for something good like the web versions that show the translation and original with option to hide either. (but I guess that's why we need the ipad2)
I read this to understand why the Islamic world is experiencing so much aggression, and wondering if there was a mandate in the Quran to make war upon others. I found only one oblique mandate in Surah 61.4, saying that "Truly Allah loves those who fight in his cause in battle array." No other calls to action in the entire work.
There is plenty of sermonizing (most of the book,) which I found agonizing. There is no proselytizing that I could find. The only mandate was to those who already believed, and that was to walk the path. Allah does all the punishing; no one else, except for the one section mentioned above. Allah tells believers not to converse with non-believers, lest they be enticed to turn away from Allah.
There is a reference to Judgment Day with plenty of sermonizing.
Interestingly, half of the book refers to "us" and "we" when Allah (I presume) speaks in the first person. In the third person, the reference is Allah.
Also interesting to me was that the final part of the book seems to be written in a different voice--Allah is now referred to as the Lord about half the time, which was not in the earlier parts.
Allah created all men from two and created all tribes to know each other, but the believers are special, are brothers and told to make peace between themselves. Clearly the extremists have not read this.
This is basically a book of worship and sermonizing with almost no violence advocated.
