I think that this book and other books by the some author have some merit, but truthfully these texts give sometimes are difficult to comprehend. The material is fairly dense and I strongly encourage students to not solely rely on this book for learning the subject. For example, I used resources like Khan academy, clutch etc. in addition to this text and found success in my physics course.
Overall, it's a good product but does not always offer the simplest explanations for concepts.
It suffers from the common pitfall of talking down to the reader. It's insulting, it's boring, and it's terrible at explaining things.
However, if you have (or are) a teacher capable of explaining things and demonstrating problems, this book does offer an extensive selection of really satisfying and challenging problems. The book itself does not even come close to preparing the student to tackle those problems, but in combination with a good teacher, it's good.
All in all, I suspect that you could do a hell of a lot better, but you could do worse. This book and a bad or text-reliant teacher would be awful, but if you know you've a good teacher, it's fine.
