This title is formatted like any other book with a table of contents, preface, and index, but it also has a second detailed table of contents, a section in the preface describing the organization of the book, information about the contributors, and a list of all of the references used. The added content and, in particular, the detailed table of contents, are beneficial. The detailed table of contents includes abstracts of the articles or chapters in one place which aids users in being able to see if any of the chapters are of interest without flipping through the entire book. The preface helpfully tells the reader in bullet point format what the chapters cover and also the intended audience.
