I don't have any other commentaries to compare this to other than study notes in various study Bibles. I've been using this as well as the commentary notes in the Nelsom Complete Study System Bible (out of print but probably the same notes are in their current study Bible) and most questions have a satisfactory answer between one or both.
He shows how God's addition of laws over time follows instances of disobedience (kinda like the way we add rules for our kids when they act up and remove rules as they show they can handle more responsibility). He shows how the narrative (while simultaneously about events that really happened) foreshadow the future. He explains how the poetry is divine commentary on the narratives. Etc. Dr. Sailhamer brings the Torah to life!
FYI. A Messianic Jewish friend of mine moved from Israel to Raleigh, NC just so he could study under (renowned Christian Hebrew scholar) Dr. Sailhamer at Southeastern Seminary. He's been thrilled with what he's learned. Dr. Sailhamer is brilliant, but knows how to teach.

And as a non linguist I found the use of footnotes not in English profoundly irritating and unhelpful.
