Great book. I listened to the audio version a while back on a long drive.
The book has a very helpful section that details book by book the major differences between the LXX and the MT.
That, to me is the value of the book. I disagree with much of what he says, but his description of each book and its features is helpful. I'm not aware of any other monograph that does this. Re having it in accordance: I love accordance. But the reading experience is not up to the standard of kindle. For books like this (not reference works), I go with kindle if not paper. Just my opinion, of course.

τὰ ἀγενῆ τοῦ κόσμου καὶ τὰ ἐξουθενημένα ἐξελέξατο ὁ θεός, τὰ μὴ ὄντα, ἵνα τὰ ὄντα καταργήσῃ, ὅπως μὴ καυχήσηται πᾶσα σὰρξ ἐνώπιον τοῦ θεοῦ.
