1 - This book does not contain recipes for database administrators.
Although it contains many chapters explaining architecture and features, such as how to deploy ASM, Data Guard, etc. It cannot be used by a DBA to learn how to do day to day administration. If that is your goal, I recommend searching another book, like Oracle Press' Install and Administrate Oracle 12c.
2- It is perfect as a reference, but the text is not boring and anyone willing to know about a new concept will be very satisfied with this book. The appendix contains a complete commands reference in alphabetical order like ORACLE OTN guides (SQL REFERENCE AND PL/SQL REFERENCE), full of examples and text explaining them.
3- The textual part is very creative. In it one can find real classess on each topics. The language is simple and enthusiastic. The examples are simple to follow and well commented and the name of the chapters are amazing. For example, instead of saying "Chapter 12 - Grouping functions", they decided to name it "Chapter 12 - Grouping things together", instead of Subqeueries, "When one query depends on another" and so forth.
In final words, as a DBA, this book is an excellent reference and will allow me to learn new concepts. As a Developer, this book is perfect and gives real classes in SQL and PL/SQL as well as a very important chapter on how to use SQL PLUS properly.
P.S. I don't know if the kindle edition will be helpful since this book is REALLY BIG and heavy so kindle edition may be too small for a good reading.
