It does cover different types of batting, what to do if you make a mistake, and has many excellent color photographs. The book also includes very useful and helpful patterns showing what should be shown with water soluble thread and what can be left to be quilted later.
I like the book, but don't feel it addressed the bearding that might occur using the polyester batting (the author prefers) with dark fabrics or that the free motion presser foot shown in the book might not be suitable to quilt the finished quilt given the thickness of the batting the author favors. It also did not address needle breakage. Hari Walner's book Trapunto by Machine, published in 1996, does a better job covering basics. This book might be meant as a companion to the earlier book. So either get the first book, or buy both books.
For ideas, I also liked the Diane Gaudynski Quilt Savvy Machine Quilting Guidebook, which had a good section on machine trapunto.
