This book is definitely not a beginner book. Making socks takes someone who has proficiency in using three double pointed needles at the same time.
It does cover such things as yarn types, how to choose the size sock you need to create, and takes about the tools you need to make them. There are hints scattered throughout the book in light green boxes.
I never knew there were so many ways to cast your stitches on to the needles but Ms. Rehfeldt describes two ways I never knew about. She also describes increasing and decreasing techniques, and "wrapped" rows. Binding off also has more than one way to get this done as well. The seven projects give you a variety of sock types to create from a basic sock to on that has ruffles.
A chart of yarn weights and a list of abbreviations are given at the end of the book but you might want to check these out first so you are sure you are reading the patterns correctly and have the correct weight of yarn for the project.
If your skill level is more than basic and you want to try you hand at making socks, these book will provide several projects for you.
