This rating is for the Song of Songs portion, as I haven't done enough with Proverbs to rate it, and haven't looked at the Eccl. section at all yet. On SoS, Garrett is, in my opinion, far too brief. His introduction has some minimal responses to arguments for a later date of composition. The commentary itself is ok, but I'd go with Hess on SoS (BCOTWP) over this.

While not the most in depth commentary on Ecclesiastes, Garrett's treatment provides good bang for your buck. Contra Longman, Garrett argues for the unity of Ecclesiastes, which reflects on morality and how we should live in this world, in light of the events in the first 3 chapters of Genesis. Garrett argues that while Qoheleth encourages his readers to enjoy life's pleasures, ultimately life's answers are found solely in God. I recommend using it alongside Longman's commentary. As a bonus, you get a good commentary on Proverbs and a very good commentary on Song of Songs, all in one volume.

Garrett provides a nice treatment of Ecclesiastes while avoiding the over-interpretation of Longman (NICOT, 1997) and the political anger of Provan (NIVAC, 2001) - plus you get a good second commentary on Proverbs.
