I live in the Portland area, I'm absolutely in love with alpine mountaineering, and consequently I spend most of my non-rainy weekends out climbing in the Cascades. These books (both volume 1 & 2) are my 'go to' guides for climbing route beta in the Northern Cascades. As an Oregonian, it is a bit frustrating that, per these guides, Cascade climbing begins at Mt. Hood and moves north to Canada. Of course in a sense this is fully justified (except, perhaps, in the case of Mt. Jefferson), as the best peaks are in Washington.

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.

This guidebook presents more detailed descriptions of the most popular routes in the Cascades than are available in Beckey's guides. So it's definitely helpful for newer climbers who really want to have as much detail as possible about the routes they are about to tackle.
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.
