A good look at some fundamental metal working process, stress analysis and fatigue calculations.
The bikes shown in this book don't exist in the mainstream
world of bicycling today, but they will be commonplace in twenty years.
Could use the help of a professional guy who gives books whatever it is that makes people want to buy them.
I keep mine next to the bed and read a page or two everyday. Fun stuff.

It has been my experience that bicyclers that run around talking about how lightweight their bicycles are seem to missing the point as to how to deliver power to the road.
While anyone can build something heavy, it takes some expertise to build it just right. This book gives insight on what is just right.
