    I was somewhat disappointed with this "book" as it has very little to offer in terms of "how to produce" the very very high notes beyond the top high C usually present in most fingering charts. Instead, each page simply has all the fingerings he has ever seen for you...

    to try out for a particular pitch. And, there are very few new ones from the lowest E up to the top high C, which you find on most good fingering charts. I have a double-high D fingering that works better for me than any of his, but I will admit to finding a good double-high C#, and an Eb that is starting to work. I will keep playing with it, and maybe eventually work my way up to the G above double-high C, which is the "extended range" referred to in the title.
