The entire sefer can be read here for free (as Otzar HaChochmah now allows up to 150 pages of free viewing in each sefer, and this one is less than 150 pages).

Where did you meet him?What is he looking for and why is he interested in learning Torah with you? It is difficult to answer you without knowing the answers to those questions. I'm no Kiruv professional but I do learn weekly with a secular Jew. He doesn't keep Shabbos but he does seem to believe in Torah S'Baal Peh. I only learn Gemara Seder Nezikin with ...
