Because of personal interests, I skimmed most of the book and read in detail only the chapters on Finnegans Wake. Very useful.

For: Joyce enthusiasts, people that like reading clever enlightening essays about clever enlightening books. His overview portions in the essays on Ulysses and Finnegan's Wake were exceptional. Dubliners was a little so-so (though I did quote the "A Little Cloud" essay for a multimedia James Joyce project), but his random tangents on Portrait are great.

Read the chapters on Dubliners and A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man, so the rating is based solely on those. Thought is was very average. Not sure I'll use it for Ulysses; I think there are better guides out there.

I like the big picture overview aspect of this, and the detail explanations as well.
