I'd put it in the same league as Russel and Whitehead's Principia in terms of pedagogic value for introductory students.

The main place where Bourbaki came into my life was in grad school, where a segment of Bourbaki was used in my French language comp.  IT was pretty easy to translate, given how little French I really knew.  I've never had a need to look at Bourbaki ever since.
