I read this book cover to cover twice. Oddly, this book was assigned in two different courses in a graduate school. Once during a summer course! That course required this book and The Book History Reader along with other external readings all to be read and responded to in writing in an 8-week course (painful summer). It is dense with information and a scholarly work. If not assigned, I would think of it more as a reference book.
