Some errors in the book to take note of:
Page 86: the 4th notation for the E1 diagram should be F-clockwise.
Page 112: the first notation in the last diagram of 4.1 should be F-counterclockwise.
Page 118: the first line underneath the H4 sequence should read (5)->(4)->(1)->(5).
Pages 123 & 129: V1 should be written as V1 = K1 Rs down K2 Rs up.
Page 132: two instances of U3 in the S3 sequence should be replaced by U2.
Where this book really shines is as a historical guide to the Rubik's Cube and other related puzzles. A good chunk of the book is devoted to the origins of the original Rubik's Cube and how it came to be a worldwide phenomenon in the 80s.
There is also a large section devoted to other puzzles that have been inspired by the Rubik's Cube. Many of these custom puzzles are truly amazing. There are a lot of nice full color pictures of the various puzzles to dazzle you (or drool over if you collect puzzles). This book is very current, containing puzzles created as recently as 2008.
Anyone who loves Rubik-type puzzles will absolutely love this book. And even the casual cuber will likely enjoy the wealth of information packed into this book.
