It's not about what you have wrote, but about what you did not write.
So its just a suggestion.

If this document is for the boost begginers, isn't is good to
show which library is 'easy' to start?
I know it is a bit controversial subject, but it is almost clear
that, at least for C++ beginners (and maybe for most of the 'ordinary'
C++ programmers) libraries like MPL or spirit is difficult.
While libraries like boost:timer and shared_ptr is easy to use.

So my suggestion is to make some section like "where to start?"
and make some pointers like....

for C++ beginners, try shared_ptr, boost::timer, etc
for those interested in functional programming, see function, bind....
for those interested in numerical programming, see random, uBLAS
and so on and on.

Hope this help.
