It is the bible of the descriptivist faction in the unending skirmishes over modern American grammar, diction and usage.
To complement this volume, you should also have a copy of the prescriptivist bible: "Garner's Modern American Usage."
Between them, they will keep you reliably informed on the language as it is actually being used and on the language as it is viewed by those who are well- (and sometimes over-) educated.
Those who criticize this book for what they perceive as its anything-goes advice do not understand its purpose. They might be better served by buying only the Garner book and steering clear of this one.
