The book was written by two geospatial leaders who are prominent advocates of QGIS. Gretchen Peterson, who co-authored the book along with Anita Graser, explains what users can learn:

The book focuses on using QGIS to make completed maps, so that you can learn as if you were in a real-world type of scenario. Along the way you will learn the myriad color capabilities of the software including topological coloring, geometry generator goodies, complex nested reports, and tricks such as hidden arrows for cartographic effects or creating “clouds” from the random point generator.
