1) If you've read introductions about Kant and some textbook summary about him, then I don't recommend that you jump into his writings because there is far too much jargon and details that simply flies over your head when you do try.
2) My friend is a voracious reader of Kant and Kant Scholars, and told me that the translation of this book was not as well written as the first edition of Critique of Pure Reason translated by Allen Wood.
3) Remember, this is a second edition, which could be both good and bad depending on how you look at it. If you are a reader that wants to absorb everything that Kant has to say, do not buy this book because literally in this books almost about half of the ideas Kant wrote are cut off. Schopenhauer complained that the second edition of Kant's work was no where as great as his first edition; this seems to indicate that if you really want to see the real essence of Kant's philosophy then it's best to read the first edition of Critique of Pure Reason translated by Allen Wood. If you simply want to read Kant without going through so much pains of reading then I guess you could read this one.
Other than that this book is the first book i've read of Critique of Pure Reason. So far it's one of the most difficult books i'd encounter, and reading more and more about Kant and occasionally going back to it to read it has helped me.
