It is the perfect size to take it along on trips where I can put it in my pocket. Like shopping trips with my wife. It gives me something to read while waiting outside the dressing room.
I really like that this book has an index. A very nice index. I have purchased other pocket version books and even some short full size books lately that don't have one. It is very annoying to not have an index.
All in all I think this is the best way to conveniently learn about the features available in OS X Mountain Lion.
