He is a good intro resource on the small scale, such as his riffing on the Master-Slave theme in the Phenomenology and the like, but he has no sense of the 'big picture' with Hegel, and -- worse -- is influenced by other readings that have proven false (Heidegger and others).

Stephen Houlgate's work is particularly good, especially his "An Introduction to Hegel: Freedom, Truth and History" and "The Opening of Hegel's Logic: From Being to Infinity". This second text is very good.
