I was somewhat disappointed to find tissue paper bottle wraps, gift bags and woven paper strips included when I was hoping for just boxes, but it was interesting. Difficulty is pretty basic including a half dozen of the most basic boxes like the masu. Yet there are four or five very intriguing patterns. The hexagon box, the lidded box made from a deck of cards, and some patterns from rectangles are worthwhile all by themselves. However, as a starter on boxes, either Tomoko Fuse (several titles) or the Dover Book of Decorative Origami Boxes (Rick Beech) is better, though not offered in e-book form. Florence Temko does have a particularly lovely 8 point star bowl design not included in this book, but in Nick Robinson's difficult-to-read e-book World's Best Origami. This is easier to read than Robinson's book, but unless you are experienced, a paper copy might be easier.
