Yes, Steve -- I agree with your recommendation, though _after_ Yousaf 
tackles the more general book I recommended.

And after your recommendation, he can go to:

Yeivin, Israel. Introduction to the Tiberian Masorah. (5th. ed) Masoretic 
Studies, Orlinsky, Harry M. Atlanta: Scholars Press, 1980.

which will, I think, tell him all he ever wanted to know on the subject <g>
