There is quite a bit of information in this text book. It covers a large range of topics and for that you can potentially learn a lot from it. There is no fluff and no verbose paragraphs to be found in explanation. The general flow of topics in the book is pretty good and makes sense as far as build up.
The explanations tend to lack much and there are plenty of texts out there that do a much better job (see Verbeek or Woolridge or Baltagi for econometric books). The book seems to occasionally lack syntax consistency and introduce a variable in an equation without prior explanation. Its explanations, while brief which can be good, tend to leave much to be desired and lack clarity if you don't have prior knowledge or statistics/matrix algebra background. The book is also chocked full of remarks like "it can easily be shown that " and some evaluative equation is shown.. or "it is obvious that", "its not difficult to see" and so on. If you don't immediately or obviously see the proof or derivation then you're left questioning either your intelligence or the author's pretension. The version I have doesn't include a data disk or an online repository of data for your use in analysis and modeling. Many books do.. and so that's another knock on this one because I prefer to spend my time understanding concepts and analyzing data, not typing data from a book into an econometric program.
Overall, if you run into this book at a used bookstore then I say buy it at a discount. IF you're looking for a good book to teach you econometrics or statistical modeling without first having a foundation then "it should be immediately obvious that" you should skip this and move on to a book that does a better job of explaining things.
