2.P-QB4 P-KKT3
3.Kt-QB3 B-Kt2

descriptive... means
1.d4 Nf6
2.c4 g6
3.Nc3 Bg2

P-Q4 means pawn to the forth square on their queen file. So instead of a game going
1.d4 d5
it would be
1.P-Q4 P-Q4
.....make any sense?

For a detailed explantion, see the following:

By the way, that's a very good book. Though wading through unfamiliar notation can be tiresome, in this case, I think you will find it worth the effort.
