W is famous for its avaunt-grande if not controversial photography and this is evident in the book. I'd say that it is a mixed bag of really attractive fashion photography and less attractive ones.
I guess some sections were weak like the section entitled "where", the big spenders section also included some random names that I did not recognize and could care less to read about. The thumbnails documenting all the magazine's covers since the first issue should have been enlarged in order to gain a better view of the covers like the books documenting the history of Vogue and Harper's Bazaar.
Final verdict, it is a nice picture book for fans of W and fashion photography, but as mentioned before it has several weaknesses and there was room for more improvements.
