The book is divided into a history section and a Organization and Life of the Church section. The history was as is described above. The Organization section was extremely tedious and I skimmed most of it. However, it might be invaluable to one who wants to know about administration of the Church.
Overall, an OK read. However, I recommend Myendorff's Theology of Byzantium over this, to get a better grasp on the doctrines and theology. Hussey's book though will give you more of the 'historical' facts though,so to speak, and less of the meaning of the beliefs.
