For a textbook, it's a fairly decent read. There was an attempt to make it interesting, and the writing wasn't pretentious and painful to read.
Plus, it was a fairly informative text with a good introduction to basic security principals. So yay for that.
Go textbook.

It made the course on security basics really easy, plus the language used is commonly understood by most people which were very good in my opinion.
