It is plenty of examples and gives a very good intuition. So I'd say it is good because it teaches traditional finance since the beginning in a way one can understand finance and the underlying math.
Clearly, the book needs a revision to put it into the modern language of financial economics as well as to add the results (and models) that have been published in papers in the last 20 years.
As I said, without a revision, reading the book is not enough to allow one to understand modern papers published in the field. As a result, after reading it you will not be able to say you know finance. But without knowing what the book is about, you will not be also able to say you know finance. Of course you can consult other sources, but even with the terrible notation, it is a pleasure to read, for instance, chapter 2 (Arbitrage), chapter 4 (mean-variance portfolio analysis) or chapter 11 (discrete-time intertemporal portfolio selection).
