As I mentioned before, the text is packed with jargon and obscure terminology, so it takes forever to get through this text. Perhaps with a second or third reading it would make more sense, but I don't know many who would put themselves through that voluntarily. If you've been assigned this text, all I can say is good luck. If you have some control over the choice of your reading material, avoid this and try something in Discourse or Genre Analysis. You'll get more out of it and you won't get such a strong headache.
If you are into cohesion, and English, this is still a seminal text, despite the three decades that have passed since its publishing. It is a thorough book that covers topics such as lexical cohesion, ellipsis, substitution, referencing, and a whole host more. For cohesion, it is a hard book to surpass.
As mentioned by others, it is a book heavy on the vocabulary, and there were times when I was feeling a bit overwhelmed. "Hypotactic" and "paratactic" remain some of my favourites that I will probably never use again.
"Cohesion in English" is probably not the best place to start, but it is a good book. For those looking for more detail on the material, this is a good addition to beef up your knowledge and get that knowledge to the next level. This is definitely not something you want to start reading if you are new to the field, or even thinking about it.
It is, however, a highly regarded and quoted text in the field of linguistics, as well as in other related fields (TESOL, rhetoric and composition, etc.).
