Boxster book - this one worth buying?

Did anyone buy this book from Gavin Farmer?

I have seen it...as I recall it gives a little history of Porsche and describes how the birth of the Boxster became. It is not a maintenance manual which is what a Boxster owner wants.

I have the book. It was a gift from my wife. It gives the history behind the development of the Boxster, has some background history on Porsche and has a lot of illustrations on the Boxster. It's not a service manual as mentioned by jcb986 but still an interesting read.
