I recommend this book for anyone who is a fan of Silver Age & Bronze Age stories and art. I would even recommend this to any younger comicbook reader who may be curious about how some of their favorite heroes & villains were portrayed back in the days before they were born. If you're the type who likes to "try before you buy," you may want to see if your local library has a copy. Either way, it's a great way to see how superheroes were portrayed before events, crossovers, reboots, and re-imaginings became commonplace.
Full disclosure: I'm a big Captain Marvel (Shazam) fan and I'll pretty much read whatever book he's in. I don't necessarily like that he plays second fiddle to Superman but I'll take the Big Red Cheese however I can get him (DC never seems to do Shazam justice).
Captain Marvel has long been a favorite of mine, plus Supergirl & Mary Marvel! ...and Superman.
Roy Thomas' is story is entertaining, tho' A BIT contrived, but Rich Buckler and Dick Giordano really deliver on the art.
