So I was curious about this twenty-two-page booklet. Olyott touches on matters of expression, but the first part of the booklet is actually an introduction to the doctrine of Scripture. Olyott reminds us how the nature of what we are reading--God's holy Word--determines how we should read it.
The second part deals with public prayer, and in laying out what such prayer ought to be like--public, pastoral, didactic, and fresh--his advice is truly (as the blurb on the back says) "wise and practical."
