This book serves as high-level documentation for async-std and a way of learning async programming in Rust through it. As such, it focuses on the async-std API and the task model it gives you.

Please note that the Rust project provides its own book on asynchronous programming, called "Asynchronous Programming in Rust", which we highly recommend reading along with this book, as it provides a different, wider view on the topic.
