    I skimmed through the book the other day. The book is very thin(with 100 pages or so) and the text is just HUGE. The content mostly focuses on how to write resumes & cover letters and important qualities a physicist must have to get employed, which is not much different than any other online career guide. Personally I don't think it's worth it.
    Just my personal opinion though.
