This is a very good book if you know a little of the sky already Carol..
It is a real help in Starhopping to objects, when you dont have A GOTO MOUNT.

Small star charts with star hops included, along with finding directions via Star Hops...
Hence "TURN LEFT AT ORION " and so on to get to the superb triple Beta Monocerotis.

The eyepiece sketches depict what you will realistically see in a small say 4" scope...even mentions a lot of beautiful double stars...
That is what I remember from it ,so highly recommended for beginners with some knowledge of Constellations already.

PS: And take Stu's advice on charts.
