This is probably the best book in this subject, and contains a wealth of information useful to the practicing reliability engineer, fleet risk manager and any software professional tasked with writing code to do warranty analysis. It assumes that the reader has a decent background in mathematical statistics, and is familiar with the basic ideas of stochastic processes, renewal equations, distributional analysis, etc. It's extremely expensive, but worth the price if you are serious about developing warranty models in a rigorous manner.
From a practical perspective, you need other statistical textbooks like Meeker's "Statistical Methods of Reliability Data" and Wayne Nelsons books to develop good reliability models from field data, and some books on imputation methods, Bayesian methods etc to help clean up missing data (which happens more often than you realise). Purchasing this book makes sense after you have a good reliability / field data collection and analysis program in place.
Overall, the book deserves a full five stars for being the best book out there in this important field
