The patterns are arranged by number of pairs used, which is a rough analog for difficultly. They range from 10 pairs + gimp to 88 pairs + several gimp pairs. With two dozen pairs, you'll be able to do anything in the first third of the book.
This book is not an instrucitonal text. It assumes you know how to make a picot, and what a honeycomb stitch is. I would recommend that learners find a copy of The Technique of Bobbin Lace and use that to learn both basic bobbin lace and the beginning techniques of Bucks Point, and then purchase this book as a wealth of practice materials.
You might also look in to the same author's "A Visual Introduction to Bucks Point Lace," which may be a little more beginner-friendly and also has some beautiful patterns.
