I really like reading about Menger, but I have never actually read Menger - though I have always wanted to.

For a man who's read (as an amateur) a decent amount of Austrian text - are there reasons to read this book?

Yes, he writes clearly and you will gain as much from reading his Principles of Economics as you will a more modern intro to Austrian econ, if not more.
