He does briefly mention multi-cues on page 88. This is the current approach, where either first or second round controls are bid below game, to show extras. Roman Key Card Blackwood is essential with this approach and Klinger explains this. Of course, the 5NT trump-ask is unnecessary now.
Klinger does explain some very important non-cue inferences. The book is well written and is a great basis for expert bidding. When do we get the second edition?
The author explains how to use cue bidding and gives many examples of both reaching good slams with a lot fewer than 33 points or staying out of bad slams despite holding 33+ points (not necessarily HCP).
In addition to standard cue bidding (first round controls) teh author presents some other techniques such as mixed cues (1st and 2nd round) and multi cues and denial cue bidding.
The only knock I have against some of Klingers books are he presents conventions that are not standard, and perhaps not as good as others. For example, he presents SCROLL, a method used by Australian Expert Tom Seres. Who uses that convention? No one. But overall, this is a great book.
(Klinger also has a great 4 volume set of books Card Play Made Easy on Declarer play technique)
