This commentary, I think, didn't always get the tone of Ecclesiastes right, but it did bring great material to illustrate and flesh out messages on Ecclesiastes. It is much more useful as a homiletical commentary than a textual or theological commentary. That said, i was very glad to have had it!

I highly recommend this clear, concise commentary on the book of Ecclesiastes. I used it to help me prepare as I taught a group of women through Ecclesiastes.
