Has anyone read / come across this book and have anything to say? It caught my eye and I'm seriously considering getting it but am not sure if it's worth it.

I have heard nothing but wonderful things about this, and it has been recommended to me by many people over the years.

Excellent! Thank you both!

Sleeper, do you have a copy? Have you read through it or even paged through it?

Antonis - could you describe the book a bit more, please? Is it just 150 prayers divided into kathismata? Do they have a special theme? It's worth it even for $30 or so? Do you pray some of the prayers regularly, or go through the book during certain times, or? Really any extra info is appreciated.

I recommend it as a prayer book.  There are comments on the about the compilation of these prayers on the site to which you linked. 

If you want an excellent prayer book, this is an excellent one.

It's nicely bound, with a built-in bookmark, and holds up over time.

This is a wonderful work to have.  I try (and most often fail)to read/pray this during Great Lent in place of the appointed psalter readings of the hour.  It is a very meaty work. It does a great job in pointing out just how much you have sinned and how deprived you are of God, but gives hope in repentance and what Christ has done for your sake. It is fabulous.  Also, it's just a nice book to have. It has acid free paper, gold leafed.  Get it.
