It is then broken down into 3 areas of sewing: Dressmaking, Home furnishing (including quilting) and embellishing & customising covering several different techniques within each of those sections. It then finishes with 8 projects incorporating skills from all 3 sewing areas covered in the book. The projects are rated by simplicity and give the time needed to complete the project too. You will also find a useful trouble shooting section addressing common problems at the back of the book.
The book is really easy to follow; it is very photo heavy which I love as I am very much a visual learner. I think it's much easier to understand when you can see things rather than having to try and figure it out from just text. There are also some very useful tips scattered throughout the book too.
I think this book will prove an invaluable guide for beginner-intermediate sewists.
Definately recommend this book whatever machine you have, or whatever skill level you're at.
If you know the Haynes car manuals then you'll know what you are buying with this too.

The book is great, my daughter is 15 and very interested in dressmaking. This manual is the a-z of all things sewing, exactly what she wanted.
