I have not seen the finished product, but I reviewed Stein's manuscript for MAA prior to publication and was VERY impressed. The level of exposition made it quite accessible to people with varied mathematical backgrounds. I am anxiously awaiting the text.
I found the text quite readable and enjoyable. Stein's reputation for well-written mathematics will continue.
