If you are total beginner in hadith studies, this book is good. It gives you a brief idea and summary of what the branches of hadith studies are. Maybe a better title for the book is "An introduction to hadith studies". I won't call this book a "textbook". However, i think the "flow" of the book isn't that good. It jumps here and there from chapter to chapter. There really isn't a continuation between each chapter. But, all in all, i think this is a good introductory book.

Organization is good but riddled with factual errors and poor research. Author shows no proficiency nor expertise in the field of Hadith. Further tarnishes his work with a premature call for reform at the end of the book. Not sure why this book is taught at the Hartford Seminary by Dr. Ingrid Mattson. No better alternative?

Nicely written. The book conveys us to investigate hadith and not blindly accept anything we hear, even from an Imam or Scholar. And even if the hadith is stated "sahih".
