It is definitely a very well organized research tool with a wide variety of topics.
The study is comprehensive and technical in nature and can also be used as a reference source. The reader will learn how the verbal and nominal patterns are formed and be directed to many classical works from the 8th century and onward. The theories are presented in an accessible language and shed light on the data.
I can highly recommend this book.
