This book is a good introductory text when you have only little knowledge on ARM architicture and SOCs in general. It covers all the basics you need to know but when it comes to designing a real system you need the ARM architecture reference manual by David Seal. So this book aims more on students than on experienced hardware and software engineers. Anyway for students, as I am, it's a good choice that should be worth four stars.
