This book is identical in content (word for word) to the Chilton manual. Their layout is slightly different. Buy one, but not both. Chilton seems to have larger diagrams, Haynes has more efficient print layout. Take your pick.
By the way, there are 2 pages on spark plug replacement, with photos, and the cabin air filter replacement is covered in the Subaru owners manual, so don't be put off. Subaru's are pretty bullet proof so you shouldn't need this too much, but it's always good to have a manual like this on the workshop shelf.
Anyway, it's ok for a basic manual, but one of the first jobs I needed it for was a rear wheel bearing. They basically state that the job is too hard for you, so pull the housing off the car and bring it to a machine shop to have the bearing pressed in. I ended up finding instructions online and was able to complete it myself that way.
Basically, I'd say treat it as a quick reference, but don't expect a fully comprehensive, "bumper to bumper" service manual.
