How protective is the BookBook for IPhone 5?

I have an Otter Box which is know is going to be more protective than the BookBook. But let's say I drop it from my pocket onto hard floor. Will it crack or break? How durable is it?

    The primary change between this one and the one i have (for the 4S) is the plastic phone holder and the hole for the camera on the back. The BookBook for the 4S is very protective, leather offers an unexpected amount of drop protection. And where the iPhone 4S version is sometimes prone to sliding out the top, the iPhone 5 is held in tight by a plastic device and is thus incapable of that.
