I would say this book is just good enough to keep reading. I started skimming and turning pages ahead a little more than halfway though. It just stresses over and over again that buying counterfeit stuff is bad and tells story after story about how bad things happy to people involved in counterfeiting. If you know nothing about the trade, it may be interesting, but if you live in the modern world and see fake stuff all over the place, skip it.
Lots of information surrounding the counterfeit trade and its dangers. Gives a new perspective and gravity to the seemingly harmless actions of buying small knockoff items.
You'll never look at a fake handbag the same way again. Worth a read.
