The introductory material to each of these prophets is enlightening, and while not extremely detailed, provides the reader with a decent amount of background material. The more technical matters regarding the Hebrew text are generally set apart in the "Notes" section that follows immediately upon the English translation of a passage, and any Hebrew in the commentary section itself is accompanied by an English translation, meaning that a working knowledge of Hebrew is not necessary for fully benefitting from the commentary. The commentary section (as well as the introductions) provides not just interpretation of the text but, where important, crucial background information regarding geography, culture, societal practices, and the like. (For example, in the commentary on Amos there is a significant amount of material that enables us to better understand the nature of the practices that Amos is condemning.)
I highly recommend this commentary to anyone seeking to gain a greater knowledge of one or more of these five books.
