The book's indexing is good -- easy to find the poem you want to read and to jump there. The book includes: the Latin verse, a poetic translation, and a prose translation. However, the poetic translations are definitely dated and difficult for a modern English speaker to read and understand. Personally, I find them lacking charm. The prose translations are actually much better and reveal more of Catullus' wit and charm.
