Don't let the name fool you, this book is way more than (about) sketching. Rather, while it does have some sketching included it is more (and primarily) focused on mixed media techniques and exploring different media to incorporate into one's sketchbook (similar to an art journal).
I don't believe one would necessarily have to use an art journal to get some great inspiration and ideas from this book. I have found several things I would like to try to incorporate into some of my paintings, as well as breath new life into some tired ho-hum artwork I've done.
With the "Look Inside" the book feature, you should quickly be able to determine if this is what you are looking for or not. For me, this was exactly what I was seeking and I'm very pleased with it. Additionally, for a book that has only 144 pages, there is a lot of "meat" to it, it's packed with great information and lots of photos/pictures to give a visual on the methodology/tutorials being discussed.
As an aside: It's a small thing (but a great touch) that this (7.4" x 0.4" x 9.0") book has a pretty sturdy cover and back for a paperback, and the top and bottom right corners are nicely rounded off.
