Some schools described in the back are not detailed in the book at all.
The appendix is a little difficult to navigate, it would be nice if page numbers were included or there was an entire index dedicated to the schools mentioned in the book.
Otherwise, if you're just using this book to get an idea of where you should apply (as you definitely should not rely solely on this book for all of your graduate school information), it does a decent job.
Additionally, keep in mind that the research-practice continuum measurements are self-report, and really the only way to know the inclination of the program is to talk to the students themselves. Some programs may be able to put you in touch with one of their Ph.D. candidates, but there's a selection bias there as well. Another option is to look up specific schools on forums and see what current/past students say/have heard. Finally, the most reliable and time-consuming way is to visit for yourself and speak to the students directly.
