Shon Harris presents the material in a very clear and concise manner. For many CBK domains, due to the depth of knowledge required and the amount of material, normally this would get tedious very quickly and hard to absorb. However, Shon presents this information in a way that is engaging and not dry and boring. She uses humor at certain points, and makes light reading of abstract and difficult topics to understand. Not only does she write in a very smooth and easy to understand manner, she covers essential content - i.e. - she doesn't write "fluff". She also has a very amazing style of writing in that she manages to bring back topics constantly throughout the chapter that you covered earlier, and makes it relevant to what you are reading now - by referring to previous concepts. Sometimes you've covered a topic and then by the time you start thinking out logical questions, Shon Harris answers them and ties everything together smoothly and seamlessly.
I would highly recommend this book. I think that it is the style of writing and clarity which makes it so useful and valuable compared to other books which just seem to "assemble" bits of information from various sources and clump it all together. When you read Shon's book, you actually come away understanding the chapter and domain.
