First, it is not organized as a commentary.
It is not a verse-by-verse (or even chapter-by-chapter) exposition of the book of Proverbs. It is a book of principles derived from Proverbs, with supporting verses for each principle coming from citations in Proverbs. Thus, you may have one chapter in the "commentary" which references 15 chapters in Proverbs. By the same token, you may have to look up five or six different chapters in the "commentary" to find the references to one chapter of Proverbs as you are reading through it. There is a handy table that helps you navigate through all of this, and this kind of organization may help some readers to organize their thoughts and meditations.
One problem with this approach is that is seems to imply (or perhaps assume) that the Proverbs were put together more or less randomly. Thus, if the parable of the ant follows the warning not to pledge oneself to another and precedes warnings about laziness and deception, that organization is lost and any meaning that could be seen from the juxtaposition of those teachings is also lost.
Second, the level of discourse is more devotional than analytical.
The discussions of the text itself more or less simply restates the text in a simplified form. Then, there might be a story or example on the general principle (based on the organizational structure discussed above). There are a few places where the Hebrew is elaborated a bit in some of the verses, but this is not done in much depth. For example, in Proverbs 6 (which is covered in many chapters of the commentary, including 14, 25, 26, the commentary tells us about Pro. 6:12-14: "scoundrel is literally "man of Belial," a description of a worthless man (1 Sam. 2:12; 1 Kgs. 21:10). The word can refer to a person's destructiveness (Nah. 1:11,15; Ps. 18:4) and was later used as a name for the devil (2 Cor. 6:15)."
That is an example of one of the most-detailed elaborations.
If you are looking for an in-depth commentary with lots of analysis, this may not be for you. If you want something that will help you see the overall meanings of proverbs and pursue them as themes peppered throughout the book, then this may be useful to you.
