Text is fine from a historical perspective, but I'm disappointed that my graduate program is using a text that is over 15 years old. Many of the referenced in the book are to articles written in the mid 90s, and obviously a bit dated. While I'm sure it was a cutting edge text in its day, it is a little overdue for an update.
I purchased the book used from Amazon, and was a little disappointed in the description. It was listed as good condition, but I have never see a book with so much highlighting in it. I don't know what the students were thinking when they highlighted page after page. I have never smelled highlighter when I cracked a book, but I did when I started reading this one. Didn't leave myself enough time to return and try my luck with another copy (my fault), but I do wish it was noted to have significant highlighting.
