There are few problems with the book. To modern eyes the clean black and white orthographic diagrams can seem a little sterile, but while the colour 3D-look images of the following Deep Space Nine Tech Manual can look more impressive, I personally find views like this far more interesting and useful.
The biggest issue with the TNG TM is that it's become rather outdated over the years. Writers Rick Sternbach and Michael Okuda both worked on TNG throughout its run, giving them at least a chance of keeping the show in synch with the book, but nevertheless the two have drifted apart over time. None of that is really the fault of the book or writers though, and although it's dated the TNG TM remains a truly fascinating look into the world of Star Trek.
