Every exercise is clearly explained, and the specific benefits of each (strength, balance, flexibility, agility, endurance, fat-burning, etc) are set out, to help people construct training programmes that deliver the results they're looking for.
As a relative newcomer to capoeira (about 9 months experience) I've found this book the most useful reference I've tried so far. The reality is that most full capoeira movements are far too complex or subtle to capture or explain in still pictures, so books that try to teach too much are doomed to fail. In contrast, this book concentrates on simpler movements (supported by some very clear photographs) which work well for training. It's still helpful to know capoeira from classes, but I could imagine a total beginner picking this up and being able to follow 90% or more.
