giving a total of more than 69 thousand (asynchronous) patterns. These 69,000 patterns are given in compact form in the state tables (original to the book).

The main part of the book features the best of these asynchronous patterns together with a host of additional patterns of other types (such as one-handed, synchronous and multiplex). (An asynchronous pattern is one in which the left and right hands throw in alternation, a single ball being thrown on each occasion.)
