I don't own the book, but the first two chapters and the introduction are online

I rather liked it, it looks like a reasonably good and simple introduction to GR. I'd suggest reading the first two online chapters - if you like the somewhat informal style, go for it. Also read the introduction (front matter) - the authors explain what they do and do not cover.

From what I've read, for an introduction to the subject, it's great.

It is a good book, whether you are using as an introduction for yourself or as a pedgological resource to help teach others.
