The 20 first derashot (Bar Mitzvah Speeches) have Yiddish and English on facing pages. While the contents of these discourses are not complex, they are interesting speeches reflecting the traditional approach of the times. The Hebrew discourses, in contrast, begin with a quote from the Talmud or Midrash. The halakhic discourses are deeper, dealing with questions such as whether the tefillah shel rosh can be changed for the tefillah shel yad (no. 5).
The volume is an interesting piece of American Judaica.
