The book consists of 241 pages, covering 56 pages of theoretical discussion, and 129 pages of detailed explanations and scores of ten pieces covered in the book. The pieces are explained phrase-by-phrase, with corresponding phrase numbers in the score. Each phrase has either its own full explanation, or a reference to previously encountered phrases.
I have also added some fingering charts and a quick reference guide to the main techniques covered, to make it easier to adjust to the Kinko-ryū terminology.
The book comes with recent recordings of the ten pieces (recorded in October 2009), and newly written easy-to-read foldout scores. The scores are based on the Miura Kindō notation, but where added information in Japanese in the Miura is not essential I have excluded it from my notation (in cases where the information is essential it is included in the explanation of the phrase). Here is an example from "Taki-otoshi no Kyoku", in the Miura notation (left) and the notation in the book (right).

Notation in the book

The notation in the book is beautifully calligraphed by Ryōko Satō-Linder in 2010.
