Considering the difficulty of the topic, this book is a fairly easy read. The single best thing about the book is that the advice is actionable. You can read this book and immediately begin tuning.
Coverage is excellent - performance tuning, capacity planning, setting up disk drives, managing cpu, I/O, network, and memory, index tuning, backups, replication, OLTP versus OLAP, etc.
For each subject area, the authors explain the applicable concepts and SQL Server tools, and then systematically explain their application using practical examples.
Compared to other performance tuning books, it is an 80/20 book. By this I mean that the authors focus on what is most important and then move on to the next topic. They don't get carried away demonstrating how much they know about each concept or go into the minutia of the options of each SQL Server tool.
I hope they write more books.

This is a masterpiece.Well researched and well written
I Got a hold of a couple of concepts missed in other books because of the lucidity of the examples and explanations.
