The first half of the book is mostly about the practice of skepticism: how teachers teach the way they do and why it's not necessarily the best way, how misconceptions about the horn are formed and debunked, how students are so eager to learn without questioning. The second half is about actual horn technique. I think this book is simply great for not just the horn, but just living life in general. It's in accordance with my own philosophy about musicianship: it's life itself, just expressed differently.
I disagree with the reviews that this book isn't for beginners. I think, actually, that it's best for beginners to dislodge themselves from misconceptions or pure adherence to a school of playing. I would still classify myself as a "beginner" who benefited a lot from this book.
