As it says at the beginning of that page, it's just a summary of how 
everything in the rest of the book will be done, and something that 
you're just meant to read. I believe it is already pretty clear about 
the fact that it is just general info, explaining the details about how 
the book works...

"It is not essential to immediately understand everything in this 
section. Most of this information will be clearer after performing an 
actual build. This section can be referred back to at any time during 
the process."

Any suggestions for improvement on this text?

The build process discussed on that page is the general build process 
for the entire book, so right before the actual build starts is about 
the best place for it to go.
