Besides the Rule in Latin and English on facing pages, it has much background information, voluminous footnotes, and a comparison by line with the Rule of the Master. It is useful for daily reading of the Rule, but I view it more as a study guide. If you want to simply read the Rule, consider the small English only version without all the extras. If you are an Oblate or lover of the Holy Rule, consider this version.
