Chapter 1 begins with, to paraphrase, "you're probably standing in your kitchen with a beer kit and just want to get started, so keep reading". Subsequent chapters cover broad topics: water, yeast, hops, troubleshooting a bad batch, how to keep a good journal of your brewing, etc.
If you take a look at some of the popular homebrewing channels on YouTube, you'll often see this book, or the author himself lecturing or being interviewed about pretty advanced homebrewing topics.
The writing style is clear and concise and Palmer gets to the point quickly. It's invaluable if you just need information and aren't interested in reading through citations or a bunch of unnecessary background information. The writing is often humorous and the general tone across the book is light-hearted. The author takes brewing seriously, but doesn't take himself seriously, and it's refreshing to read a book in that style.
