This is 18 pages, which appears to be a preview for future books, with the option to "tap" and preorder them. This is basically several pages devoted to a suggested sewing supply list. Followed by a few pages describing basic stitches. This would be good for the very beginning sewist who has no knowledge of sewing and has just started researching.

Quite helpful to give overview of common sewing items and stitches. Nice to see things clearly explained.
