Yes, I read it last fall and loved it! The author does a fine job of scholarship, finding guidance from the right people and has a great sense of humor. He treats people with respect and it turns out to be a mildly transforming experience for him.
And it shows the truth that none of us follow every rule in the Bible, not even the New Testament, no matter how literally we say we take the Bible. We pick and choose the rules to follow.
Read it and recommended it to a few people. It was educational and funny at the same time, and as far as I could tell he managed to not offend anyone despite writing about some traditions that are taken very seriously, no small feat.
From talking to friends who have read it, I'd say that it's a good book no matter your religion or lack thereof.
