I have AMW & love it. There are a few problems with the rules, but you can tweak those. I wrote a long article in Slingshot in praise of the book, the rules and what it means to wargaming.
The other books I'm not so sure about. I've read chunks of the Napoleonic book and been underwhelmed. I've played the ACW rules (ditto) and the Pike & Shotte (likewise). The 19th Century book may have something going for it, but......
Each of the books is a good, simple introduction to each period with lots of information and pointers for where to go next. I love that style and the way it works. However the rules in the Ancient & Medieval period work the best probably because of the way the weapon systems interact. On the other hand the systems are all fairly simple and you could easily modify them without too much trouble.
