So although the book isn't as comprehensive as it suggests, it's very well written and easy to follow. I struggled with Revit for a month or two using online resources before I finally bought this and wish that I did much sooner. It helps you understand why you should do things a certain way and has lots of tips for best practices. More often than not, Revit refuses to be intuitive so you need good learning resources and references. Consider it an investment in preserving your own mental health.
Thank you to James, Phil, and Eddy for a job well done.
Another associate architect I work with borrowed it over a weekend and immediately told me afterward that he was going to buy it for his office. So - now that I have it BACK I intend to hang onto it and finish it for myself!
