From the Back Cover
Since these lectures were given, supersymmetric particle phenomenology has been the subject of extensive study. Many models have been proposed, including some that make essential use of the supergravity multiplet. A variety of experimental searches have been carried out, and more are planned for the future.

Back to the book, I think it is a great place for mathematicians and physicists to start, in order to understand supersymmetry. The book focuses on d=4 and N=1, which is perfect to start. The book is rather mathematical, in character. Some might complain that it is perhaps too formal, but I feel that without knowing how the yoga of supersymmetry works, in detail, it is probably difficult, if not impossible, to get a sound understanding of this concept.
In all, I highly recommend this book, although it would be also useful to simultaneously look at some other sources. Arxiv contains several good introductions to supersymmetry for instance. I believe it is wise to also look at these more recent sources simultaneously.
it fills a niche that no modern book has been able
to fill. It introduces N=1 susy quickly and concisely.
The reader must work through every equation in order
to get something out of this book. The reason why people
continue to use this book of equations is because the
equations are right. If you try other books, they are
filled with typos and sometimes even more serious errors.
Get through the first 8 chapters of this book
may be chapter 22 and 24 then get into Argyres' notes
that delve into the modern aspects of supersymmetric
quantum field theory.
