I can't say enough about the value of this book in its commentary on the text of Philippians. Lexical and syntactical issues are not discussed in tremendous detail (consult O'Brien in the NIGTC series to take care of essentially all of those), but this commentary absolutely shines in the explanation of the text's meaning, both for the original audience and then in drawing out the timeless truths found in each passage. You can tell the author spent a long time thinking carefully through the text and he explains it very, very well. I don't recall anything on introductory matters, and I can't speak for the author's view of Scripture overall or how Philippians relates in detail to many other books of the Bible. But in dealing with the text of Philippians, the author has done a fantastic job and Bible teachers would be very well served to use this in their preparation to teach and preach.
