First of all, this Dzogchen forum is already under "Vajrayana Buddhism" forum. You just need to decide if this MO book belongs to which lineage of vajrayana buddhism (or Bon). I haven't heard there is MO teaching in any Dzogchen tantra or terma. I thought as a Dzogchen practitioner, one should give up all hopes and fears about future?
Don't get me wrong, I think MO is useful and I would be interested learning virous kinds of MO texts. I was just imaging some new comers might confuse the difference between Dzogchen teaching and a certain group called Dzogchen. It could be splitting hairs, but if a MO teaching is not Dzogchen teaching, it won't become Dzogchen teaching just because a Dzogchen master wrote it.
Anyway not a big deal, not too many people come to this site anyway
I haven't seen the book, although I think I know how people 'normally' using mala beads to MO, in Nyingma or Sakya tradition. Not sure if that would be useful for you.

This thread could have easily been created in:
Namkhai Norbu Rinpoche teaches Dzogchen and the topic is about a book written by him. I wasn't concerned about splitting hairs when posting this thread.
