My complaint about this is that Aquinas adds very little to the text of Aristotle itself; his "comments" are almost entirely summary. If one were reading Aristotle and having trouble with it, this book might clarify some things (though it might make some things less clear), but apart from that it doesn't contribute very much that is new.
