There is enough information along with the drawings to be able to try out the advice given in the book.
ONE THING IS VERY IMPORTANT. DO NOT take this book out on a trip and expect to be able to do everything in it without trying it out first. [This is advice I would give with ANY book about survival.]
You need to try out these suggestions and techniques first in "your back yard." In the wilderness when an emergency is upon you is NOT the time to try out something new.
I'd recommend this book!
