This brief book is really too brief to give much of an insight into these teachings, secret only because of their difficulty. David-Neel is not breaching any trust by trying to describe them, because even when spelled out clearly, unless the hearer has meditative experience, they are so radical as unlikely to be comprehensible. Therefor I'd recommend this book to anyone interested in the gradual progress of enlightening the West through magnificent explorers and thinkers like the author, and who already has at least some relevant experience. It might also whet the appetite for a beginner eager to go much deeper into these transformative teachings.
