Each chapter refers to a particular aspect of the market and an example scenario is given which is worked through the chapter. This helps the reader understand why a particular product may be traded but is general enough to be relevant for any reader. In terms of detail, enough is provided but this is not as strong a reference as Hull's book I mentioned earlier. For example, Black-Scholes method for options pricing is described in good detail but not as much as other references.
For me this is an excellent book to broaden your knowledge and increase your understanding. I would recommend reading it alongside the Hull book as it means you can combine both books to get the greater knowledge but perhaps use this one as a starting point.
The only negative I would say about this book is that it is a little US-centric with its descriptions, although given the main derivatives exchange is American this isn't that much of a criticism.
This is a comprehensive guide that will answer most readers' queries without having to refer elsewhere.
