The book is well written and spans a wide set of problems (some of them quite challenging by the way). Obviously it is not thorough, as each covered topic could be extended on thousands of pages ... Nevertheless, it's still a good exercise that will help those a bit rusty. The solutions to the problems are well detailed.
The book also includes some tips regarding the social aspect of an interview and they are welcome.
Finally, the main drawback is that it's a one-go book, as once you'll have memorized the problems solutions, you won't have to think hard to solve them, you'll need other sets of problems to practice (this is natural, I don't blame the book).

I used this book to prepare my interviews for twitter and google, I helped a lot to guide me through the interview process in those companies. Also I recommend [...] as a reference to any IT interview.
No matter if you fail or win, the interview process will give you hints to be a better thinker. Basically recruiters want to know how you think, deduce, interact with others, and for sure if you have knowledge about computer science.
