This book is a great overview of how the New Testament manuscripts were copied and classified over the years. It has very good sections on how to do good textual criticism and how most errors in transmission can be explained. The fact that we can explain how the errors entered into the different manuscripts is a testament to how incredibly well God has preserved His Word over these many centuries. This, naturally, gives us great confidence that we know what was in the original autographs.
However, I warn you of section IV in Chapter 8 called The Use of Textual Data for the Social history of Early Christianity. This fifteen page section was written by Bart Ehrman as indicated by footnote 17 on page 280. This portion of the book is very liberal and undermines the inspiration of Scripture. Fortunately the rest of the book is not like this section and can be trusted.
