You should know that the last 38% of this book is comprised entirely of the glossary, references and bibliography, so when I got to the end I felt somewhat cheated, but I am judging this book on the quality of the information rather than it's perceived length, so it still gets 4 stars from me.
Another book that I think goes admirably well with this one is Genghis Khan: Life Death and Resurrection by John Man, which has more on the religion of the Mongols and why Genghis/Chinggis issued the degree of religious tolerance, as well as his later almost-deification in Mongolia and parts of China, but it does include a fairly detailed record of his campaigns and achievements early on in the book (in order to give you some perspective) and does a more detaield job of it than this book.
Makers of History: Genghis Khan by John Abbott is another book you might want to get, as it's free on the kindle (I haven't read it as of writing this review, so I can't offer an opinion yet).
As there are several quality reviews listed, I would prefer to them with some additional comments.
One wanting a full in depth view of the Mongol Empire as well as the Mongolian Art of War would do well to read application books by Morris Rossabi, Thomas Craughwell and Richard Gabriel's book on the Mongolian general, Subotai.

It contains sections on every category which the student of medieval war will be seeking. Recruitment, organisation, tactics, exploits of the toxophilite cavalry, the Mongol generals. This book fills an important gap in our knowledge and complements the work of J.Saunders, George Vernadsky and Martin. I'm so glad I bought a copy.
