Several types of flap-type heel turns are explained: square, horseshoe, heart-shaped.

Short-row types include the standard short-row heel; short-row heel with reinforced double stitches or wrapped stitches, round shaping, hybrid heel (short-row with a short flap), added gusset, mock short-row heel,.

Round heel types (worked in rounds) given include standard round heel and peasant "afterthought" heel.

They also show you how to knit a sock flat without seaming afterwards--pick up stitches as you go.

Recommendations are given for which heel types work best for the type of foot you are knitting for.

Seven types of toes, plus a variety of cuffs, cast-ons, etc. are included. Most of the information assumes you are working top-down, but information on working toe-up is also included.

With all of this, you can just start knitting your sock, but there are 15 sock patterns.
