The part on my camera, the Minolta 7000, was cursory at best.
For example, the book barely explains how to set the Minolta 7000 to "stop motion" if you want to stop the motion of, say, a train going 60 mph down the tracks. No step by step instructions are given--or even clearly how to get the camera into that "sport" mode to "stop motion." I ended up taking the book and my camera into a Click Camera store and having someone show me how to do it, step by step. (I loved it when the person in the store looked in the book and said, "they didn't tell you how to do that".)
In another example, there are no easily found, step-by-step explanations of how to connect an external release to this camera, how to shoot a time-exposure of the stars or other moving objects or how to use a tripod-mounted camera to shoot pictures of moving objects.
If you pay more than five bucks for this book, you'll be disappointed with it. I did and I was.
If you really need a manual on one of the classic Minolta cameras, buy a used copy of this book, but also go to Minolta's web site, download the "pdf" file for your camera's user manual and take it to Mailboxes etc to be printed and bound with a plastic cover. That's what I did after I was so disappointed with this book. Betweent the two and the folks at the Click Camera, I'm learning how to use the camera.
