The illustrations are lovely and the information is relevant. There is even a chapter on how to fix different parts of your bike...which I've hardly ever attempted but the text and pictures explain it nice and clearly.
There is useful information on how to ride safely in traffic as the author rides her bike in London...and how to arrive at work without looking too floppy.
As this is titled 'A lady's guide to owning and riding a bike' don't expect to find information on cross-country or mountain biking.
I found it a gentle read and it's the sort of book you could buy for your Aunt or female Cousin without offending.
