The good: It has a lot of trails and landmarks, including some that are not on the National Park Service brochures, and I made good use of this. The material is durable and waterproof (you might not think you need the latter feature in the desert, but I got rained on for most of a day on my trip).
The not-so-good: The countour interval is probably a little too big. Oftentimes you can find yourself walking in a canyon from which you cannot see out, but on the map it appears as flat ground. This is especially problematic on some of the trails not mentioned or maintained by NPS; the map also doesn't make a distinction between these trails and the official ones, so you may find yourself somewhere that NPS doesn't really support.
I'm also used to some of the other NatGeo maps that have more trail/hike summaries and info about the park's landmarks; this map has a little safety/planning info, but nothing really useful for determining what to see. One entire side of the map is dedicated to the Eastern half of the park, which doesn't really have much of interest to the average person, so this may have been a good spot to add some insets or trail notes.
Overall, I'd definitely recommend it, but you may want to couple it with a guidebook or recommendations from a ranger so you know how to get the most of your trip.
