Part 1 is basic here's-how-to-sew-clothing information with an emphasis on the decorations and customizations that might interest a cosplayer.
Part 2 is instructions for how to sew several included patterns for basic costume parts (cape, tunic, leggings, etc.).
Part 3 is instructions for several costumes that can be put together from the included patterns.
Going through them gives you a good idea of how mixing and matching, combined with fabric and detail choices, can give you completely different looks. Parts 2 and 3 are, in my opinion, curated so that they give a solid foundation that will let you go off-book pretty easily.
There's also an index in the back of the book, and cutting layouts and size charts for the included patterns. In my opinion it's well worth the money and good for anyone who wants to start customizing their sewn clothes.
