One of my favorite parts of the book is actually in the first chapter and available as part of the free download. Erik lists several gems of wisdom that you "Need to Know" in the first few pages. You should post them on your wall, they come from experience.
One reviewer points out that Erik's popular blog offers the same tips found in the book. Even though that is partly true, this book brings you more than just a snippet of code or helpful example. You're provided the tools, context, process and domain understanding to master how to brand SharePoint. You may have heard of the Chinese Proverb, "Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime." This book offers you many "snippets" that will feed you for a day but also teaches you the skills and domain knowledge to master branding SharePoint for a lifetime.
I would have liked to have seen more practical examples of actually building completed projects. There are plenty of one off examples in the book that are very handy but it would have been nice perhaps to start with a single branding project and develop that throughout the book. However, I do understand that this maybe not what everyone wants from a book like this.
This books is certainly one that is worth adding to your SharePoint reference library and will be a valuable resource that you can refer to again and agin. That said, I think that most will find that need additional resources to really get the hang of SharePoint customisation. This is not the fault of the author it is simply that SharePoint is such a huge product with so many options to work with.
Personally, I would have liked to have seen more development around a single project so that it could tied together however this doesn't detract from an excellent book that is a worthwhile read for anyone looking at doing SharePoint customisation.
