My comments, therefore, have entirely to do with how this book could be made more user-friendly.
First, I'd pay a lot more for it if it was workbook-style. The print needs to be a lot bigger to make it easier on the eye, and having some space to do the exercises directly in the book would be a huge plus.
Second, to accommodate the above ideas, it needs to be a LOT larger format, as well as spiral-bound so that it can lay flat. As it is, it's a small, thick book with very tiny typeface that doesn't want to stay open. All of those factors make it VERY hard to use in practical terms. You'd have to be really committed to be willing to struggle to see the print, hold open the book, and do the exercises on some other paper where they can't be kept with the section of the book you're working on.
These simple changes, which wouldn't alter the content at all, would make this book many times more user-friendly.
