Has anyone read this? It seems like a good one. Very clear and straightforward, good explanations using physics, clear diagrams. I've only read about 10%, having skimmed through the rest.

It's not solely focused on aikido, but virtually all of it applies.

It seems to have good reviews. How has your read through been? I am thinking about ordering it myself after the reviews I have read online.

It's an excellent book. The diagrams are very simple and very clear, so even if they're not 100% the way you do things, they give you a means of visualising what you want to do/try to do and makes experimentation with technique easier since you're no longer limited to trying to explain things (and ensuring the recipient understands what you mean, since one word can mean different things to different people).
