Most helpful is the section on troubleshooting a wooden plane and the steps required to get it back in perfect tune.
I think this the best book for woodworking beginners, period. The title is almost misleading, because there is so much more information than just making wooden planes. It is by far the best book I have seen in the actual use and technique of using hand planes.

I have gotten useful information out of each one, maybe they can be of benefit to you also.
