Some obvious tips, many non-obvious tips. For example: drink water, not redbull. And explanations why. Lots of good resources and examples. Read it weeks before the jam, so you have time to practice your pipelines.
The book sample is only 18 pages, but only 3 pages of that is content. 2 of those pages is the preface!
