Yes! This is actually a very simple subject-verb-object sentence. However, the subject and object are clauses, so the sentence looks more difficult than it is. 

Subject = the knowledge used to instruct people

Verb = differs from

Object = the knowledge used in this book

My understanding is: There is information that is used to teach people. There is information in this book. The two types of information are different. 

As long as my understanding is correct, you did a good job communicating! :)
