I read this alongside Ulysses and it was quite a big help in figuring out what the heck was going on in the book. His premise is about bringing back Joyce's connection to the "common man" and everyday life rather than just all the academic theory connected with Ulysses. It's pretty readable as far as literary criticism goes, but that's not to say that I understood all his discussion about Joyce's meaning in his work.
