It doesn't. In fact, I'm left scratching my head and wondering what just happened. To start with, the layout of the book is bizarre. The chapters had no relation to each other and there was no flow from one to the next. It jumps all over the place, from modern day back to Ferran's childhood, to El Bulli's backstory, to a lengthy interview with one of Ferran's most belligerent opponents. Many times it was a challenge trying to figure out what on Earth is going on.
I did eventually glean some useful information, mostly to do with what Ferran will be doing with elBulli after the restaurant closes in July 2011. And it was interesting learning the backstory to El Bulli and finding out more about how Ferran rose to his position. It is not, though, much of a biography of Ferran himself.
As a chef, I was hoping it would of touched more about his thought processes and technique development. All in all a waste of time reading this unfortunately.
