Dated. But some good info, though since I ordered it from Amazon rather than browsing it in a bookstore, I didn't realize that it only has a small section on English programs (and one on film studies as well) but includes info on pretty much every sort of graduate progam, which was not tremendously useful for me. In all, i ended up reading about 140 pages of the 400+ page book.
