I used to own a copy of this book. It's great, and if you're interested in awk you should definitely seek out a USED copy. That said, this is not the end-all-be-all awk reference. Depending on the awk that you're using (more than one flavor exists) this book may actually disappoint you.
Take gawk, for example: it has socket networking, column-based fields, and other bells and whistles that aren't covered in this book. I believe nawk also has features not covered or even acknowledged. So while I agree that this is A great awk book, it is far from being THE great awk book. From my own personal experience with awk, no such book exists. I can't imagine fully embracing awk with less than two decent references. They're all kinda small so two books shouldn't scare you.
My personal opinion: buy a copy of this book in some form and at least get an O'Reilly awk book (sed & awk is a good one), and if you want to go wild with gawk (my favorite), the gawk manual is indispensable.
Or, just learn from websites. There's a ton of info out there ripe for the pickin'.
Many O'Reilly writers can take a good writing tip from the structure of this book!
Reading only two paragraphs, an AWK programmer can easily write intermediate level AWK scripts.
1) Written to the point, containing only facts, with no unnecessary words!
2) Due to a lack of wordiness, the book is a short read.
1) I'm still a fan of O'Reilly books being open, or containing no Digital Rights Management. (ie. DRM, Encryption, ...)
2) Cut and dry, similar to Kernighan's, The C Programming Language, but a much shorter read.
3) No PDF or EBook version.
