The descriptive section, pages 12-24 had the most valuable information about the Bison themselves, although the page on viewing them today (p.38) did give some hints on what to do or not do when watching them.
Actually the worst part of the book (other than not really making it clear just how unsure estimates of original herd size really are) was on p.32 describing the Sharp's Buffalo rifle as having a .45 caliber 30 inch barrel capable of hitting at a quarter of a mile. From my reading I've read that the Sharps came in several calibers and barrel lengths and most hunters tried to get close in for their shots. Other than that even this page was good.
There's a map showing you where to find public viewing herds but it has only the vaguest of directions on how to get to them, no addresses, phone numbers or websites.
Short, a little bit pricey, but you will learn a little something.
