This book is extremely useful for anyone who plans on diving headfirst into Chaucer. Having a collected works of Chaucer is the first step to fully studying the works, and having them all in one place is highly convenient. I find that the set up and the notes in the back of the book are very useful and would lend themselves to assisting on research papers. I would not, however, suggest this particular version of Chaucer to the casual reader, as all the works are found in the original Middle English and heavily footnoted.
