Help with Historiography Again

I am thinking of assigning John Tosh's The Pursuit of History to my historiography class next semester. It was one of the books that Dr. Frank Dikotter used when he taught the historical methods class I took for my MA at SOAS. I have been rereading it and it looks like it is accessible enough to use for undergraduates here. But, I am wondering if anybody has any experience with assigning it to first or second year undergraduates and what were the results?

I am using it for the 1st time in an independent study course. The student is a graduating senior, and he really likes it. Only issue is that he doesn't know British history, which means some explaining is order at times.
