The authors describe and give instructions for a wide range of cast-ons, bind-offs, toe and heel styles, and cover top-down and bottom-up construction for all of these. They also give information about which method to use when, and how to make changes to gauge, yarn weight, repeats, spacings, which are very useful if you want to adapt patterns or write your own. There are sections on how to avoid common faults, how to repair socks, and how to accommodate different patterns of wear, as well as descriptions and illustrations of a range of different stitch patterns.
In all, it seems to me it covers almost everything you could want to know about sock knitting to take you from beginner following a pattern blindly to having the expertise to design your own sock patterns, and remedy your problems with existing patterns.
However, and this is not really a criticism, just advice to a potential purchaser, I do not think this is the best book for the complete beginner. For that I recommend Getting Started Knitting Socks , which is what started me off - the best book ever for beginners, and leaves nothing to your imagination. Once you have mastered the basic sock pattern and understand how to knit socks, then I highly recommend this book by Charlene Schurch - it really will take you to another level and enable you to master the subtleties of sock knitting. The subtitle 'Expert Advice, Tips and Tricks' says it all - it's just like having your grandma sitting next to you, giving you the benefit of her years of sock knitting experience!
