I had previously read Luther's "Bondage of the Will," so I wanted to read Erasmus' "Discourse on Free Will" to which Luther's book was a response. This book provides a reasonably good reading of both in one pocket-sized volume. I do think that the editor's forward favors Erasmus too much, painting him as a virtuous humanist opposing Luther the fiery fundamentalist. In fact reading the two together it becomes clear that in the issue concerned, at least as it stands to Biblical interpretation, Luther creamed him. But that is just an opinion.
The main reason I did not rate this volume higher is that Luther's portion is heavily edited down...for that matter Erasmus' might be as well, I am not sure. The problem is that the editors nowhere mention that they have edited either work. If I did not already have my own copy of "Bondage of the Will" I would not know that this volume was edited at all. The editors should have made that clear somewhere in this book before they published it.
