I recently watched a series of Youtube videos based on a book titled "Imagining the Tenth Dimension" by Rob Bryanton, but I noticed a few inconsistencies so I haven't bought the book yet. Does this book accurately represent what is known about the higher dimensions?

If not, could you suggest a better one for someone with only a cursory knowledge of such things?

Welcome to PF;
Does this book accurately represent what is known about the higher dimensions?
No. "What is known about higher dimensions" can probably be summed up as "not much" or "almost nothing" ... but you'd need to define "higher" and "dimension" (and, for that matter, "accurate") to be sure. You got a link to those youtube things?
If not, could you suggest a better one for someone with only a cursory knowledge of such things?
I can be more definite that that - you will not find any book that will accurately cover many-dimensional physical models for someone with only cursory knowledge. You just have to learn the math.
