This is an excellent study. The format is academic but the prose is accessible. His argument got a little thin in a couple spots but his thesis is sound and defended. Wenkel pointed out the lack of Christ-centered preaching in Proverbs, and I think he is right that problems have arisen by the absence of canonical reading of Proverbs. He developed his argument patiently and his theological propositions are mostly reserved for the last chapter, but it is well worth the wait.
