What's really nice about these books is that it's not a collection of easy 'dog' routes, or a collection of super difficult "hard man" routes. Rather, it's simply a collection of climbs the authors find noteworthy for some reason. In that regard the selections are far from comprehensive, and largely reflect the aesthetics of the authors. Nevertheless, they have very good taste. The detail on descriptions and route photography is great. I look here before going online for beta.
That said, you will eventually want to have the Beckey guides to refer to for routes beyond the small collection represented here, and once you have the Beckey guides you can find out pretty much anything else you need to by researching on-line trip reports. Perhaps it's more convenient to have all the information in a single book though.
I used this guide quite a bit for my fist few months climbing, but after that it more or less stayed on the shelf and I tend to use Beckey and climbing websites to plan my routes now.
It's a good book though. Unlike the Smoot guides these are mostly accurate. The only negative is simply the limited selection of routes.
