Disappointing.
A very well presented book but for a complete beginner it is not very helpful at all. The first five pages are text only, which go into types of brushes, and explain some procedures in
a limited fashion etc. but are very limited on actual instruction. Even a few pictures to go with the text would be more helpful.
The rest of the book is presented very well in glorious colour but it explains several projects step by step which in my opinion you need to be a competent airbrusher before you can tackle them.
I would have to say that this is not the book for the complete beginner.
