I judge books by either the number of tricks that I will ACTUALLY do, or by the number of ideas it sets off in my brain. In both cases, this books does very well.
With only 1 very quick perrusal of this ebook under the belt, I have 4 items that I'm going to be thrilled to do. 2 of them have already been tested on the spouse and both fooled her. (And we know how hard that is to do).
1 of the items used a simple well-known sleight, and the other used a simple gimmick. I already knew the sleight, and the gimmick took all of 5 minutes to make, so this book is already marked for re-reading and re-reading.
And as far as setting off ideas in my brain goes, so far I've slapped my forehead about 10 times and said, "D'oh - why didn't I think of that?". Some clever people in this book.
The layout of the book is excellent, and has a simple usable way of jumping directly to the trick or author that you like, or quickly bouncing back to the index.
The only real complaint I have is that a couple of the links in the book that point to demos of some of the tricks are expired and don't work.
All in all, for the money, this is a very nice book with some very usable material.
