"... provides a solid foundation for the master-level student as well as power engineers new to protection principles, and it is most certainly a valuable reference for the experienced protection engineer. This book provides enough information of historical applications to aid the reader in understanding the protection in service today. The material is presented clearly with examples to provide practice of the fundamentals presented."
―Miriam P. Sanders, from IEEE Power & Energy Magazine, September/October 2015
"The book describes in a very comprehensive and efficient way main problems of power system protection. The protection principles, criteria as well as relay setting calculation rules are explained in detail, with use of many practical examples. The reader receives a book with all practical knowledge in the field in one band."
―Prof. Waldemar Rebizant, Wroclaw University of Technology, Wroclaw, PL
"The book addresses interesting and timely topics. By analyzing the review materials I feel that the book is based on a proper fusion of technology and methodology. Besides, I expect that it implements an effective balance between power system protection theory and engineering practice. For this reason I’d like to express a positive opinion about the book project."
―Alfredo Vaccaro, Department of Engineering University of Sannio, Benevento, Italy

This book is not beginner friendly. There aren't many examples and a lot of the explanations are complicated. Usually when there's an example you'll say "where did that come from?" You'll have to backtrack to see where values and terms come from. The text can drone on as well which makes it hard to read and stay focused.
It does contain a plethora of information on a subject that's not really covered in depth so that's a good thing. I would say it's a book to use as a reference when you need quick information whether it's for an exam or for work. It's definitely not a book to read for hours on end to learn about the subject. Especially since it lacks a lot of examples and clear explanations.
I guess I'm out of luck...
If you already have experience in the protective relaying field, this book will serve as a great reference for you. If you are just getting into the field, or want to learn more about protection just for fun, I would suggest this book along with Fundamentals of Power System Protection (Paithankar, Bhide). Read a topic in Paithankar first (like transformer protection), and then read the same topic in Blackburn. Paithankar will give you a condensed and clear explanation of the basics on a topic, and then Blackburn will go into more depth.
