The chapters then have a very clear breakdown of the important coverage areas at the start, and key learning concepts with great case studies and review questions at the end.
It's not an easy book but it's thorough and I found it clear-cut though very detailed. Excellent value for money as I can see myself continuing to use this book well beyond my degree as a reference or just for the practice case studies.
So yes the book is hard work but well worth the effort - everything you learn in it is useful and analogies are used sparingly and only where they add value.
