This book is a good set of notes for individuals who already know a good bit about gardening, and perhaps who have already tried growing microgreens or who have some knowledge about the process. It is not in my opinion a good book for beginners. Here are some aspects of the book which would frustrate a beginner. It is, basically, the equivalent of about a page.
The information is interesting, but aimed over the head of most beginners. Perhaps there is interesting information on the blog or Facebook page mentioned at the end of the book, but this book is useless for me, as a beginner. This is particularly annoying since it is dramatically over-priced for the length and content.
One could get this same amount of information off the Internet, for free, with better instructions. I do not recommend this book for beginners who are trying to start indoor gardening in a simple way which demands little space and little light. It could be helpful as a set of reminders or helpful hints for those who are already accomplished gardeners--but, still, one can get the same information for free, online.
Place a handful of seeds in one hand. Place your hand palm upwards, at a slight angle towards the surface of the soil. Use your thumb, index and middle finger to gradually spread the seeds as they fall from your hand.
Try to spread the seeds evenly. Add a thin layer of soil or vermiculite. If you have any vermiculite, you can use it instead of the soil.
A step-by-step guide to growing microgreens
Vermiculite is a mineral that is used for seed propagation. After applying the thin layer of soil or vermiculite, you should still be able to see some of the seeds. Spray the seeds with a mister. You should mist your greens once per day.

If you are not sure whether they need water, stick your finger a half inch into the soil. If the soil is dry, they need to be watered. If it is damp, the seeds should be happy. If it is extremely wet or marshy, you may be drowning your microgreens.
Cover the microgreens to create a small greenhouse. If you are using propagation tray, simply place another tray on top of the one you are using. If you are using a takeout or other container, you could cover it with a plastic bag. Wait for your seeds to germinate.
Step one: kit up
It should take about a week for the seeds to germinate. A couple days after germination, take off the cover to expose the seeds to more light. Let them grow for two to four weeks before harvesting, depending on the type of microgreen. Cut the base of the microgreens with kitchen scissors.

You know they are ready to harvest when they are one to three inches in height. At harvest time, cut the base of the microgreens, just above the soil. Since they are tiny and grow close together, you should be able to cut a whole bunch at once. One or two clippings should be enough for a salad or sandwich. You can wash your microgreens under tap water. Dry them in a salad spinner or with a clean towel. Add the microgreens to your sandwiches or burgers.
A handful of microgreens such as spring onion or radish microgreens tastes great on a burger. Once you have all of your usual ingredients on the burger or sandwich, simply throw on a handful of microgreens. You could also throw some microgreens on your tacos. Put some microgreens in your salad.
The next time you are making a green salad, throw some microgreens on top for some extra flavor. Swiss chard, beet and radish microgreens are among the most flavorful in salads. Throw some microgreens inside your favorite omelette. If you are making a spinach omelette, for instance, you could add the microgreens at the same time as the spinach. Store the remaining microgreens in a glass of water.
If you have any remaining microgreens after your harvest, you can put them in a glass of water in the fridge.
