The book covers many topics, and does so in a relatively thorough fashion. There are good case studies in each chapter that highlight the specific topics covered there.
The majority of the book seems like a very long, drawn out read. There are only a few graphics, and almost every page is solid text, with no "empty space" left. While different topics are separated, and there is a decent flow between them, I found myself having to force myself to read each chapter to its conclusion. There are also several pages (more than a dozen, but I didn't count them out) that have many spelling or grammatical errors (verb tense, etc). This may be picky, but for a text used in a senior level course at a university (and for a second edition), I felt this was a bit much.
Overall, I would suggest looking at other books before you get this one. It's not horrible, but I hope there are better ones out there.
