i am a 1600 player and the level of material is a bit more advanced that this. there are some positions which i don't understand and need more time to analyse but definitely solid.
Avrukh deals with lines worth considering, real threats and not your typical weak moves. i managed to look some of the games of on chessbase database and most of the players are definitely advanced or experts in their field.
i would recommend this book to those that are definitely over 1600 because though i managed to glean gems, i don't always understand why certain moves are done. excellent nonetheless.
On the minus side, if my repertoire were to be taken verbatim from his books, an opponent would only need to know two lines (ie less than two pages) to be prepared against my 2000+ pages of study (which I have not done)! My faulty memory comes to the rescue, however, making me a little less predictable and tougher to prepare against...
Avrukh has always made copious use of diagrams and ups the ante in this volume. Every two-page spread typically has 6-7 diagrams, which I think is about optimal. Just leafing through the book and trying to analyze from the diagrams and then following his commentary gives a strong idea about the openings he covers. This provides a strong and concrete ideas approach to complement the actual variations. This, of course, mitigates or even cancels the minus I mention in the previous paragraph. It also makes study much easier, quicker and more flexible.
The chess publishing world is coming out with some outstanding material these days and Avrukh is among the very best of the current crop of top authors.
