What is TSR?
The 2nd Ed exploded the few core rule books of the 1st Ed into many shrapnel-sized supplemental rule booklets that were even more complex and more expensive. These slim books would've generated more cash for the company had they included more information applicable to the game. Too often the new info was just a generalized rehashing of old info, like tips on being a good dungeon master game referee or how to "play nice" with one another.
Too much of it was filler and already covered in the core rule books from the 1st edition. It expands upon the basic race details of the gnome and halfling, those diminutive cutesy folks so limited in stature but big on character. With this book, players were encouraged to take the gnome beyond the typical illusionist prankster and likewise gave the halfling more to do than playfully pilfer treasure horde baubles.
Clever illusionists and sly practical jokers.
Brilliant burglars and easygoing farmers. Now The Complete Book of Gnomes and Halflings reveals the secrets of these two popular races - their culture, beliefs, and subraces including two new subraces , as well as 28 new character kits, from the gnome Goblinsticker to the halfling Forestwalker.

When you're typically described as "like a dwarf, but different," you know you need some love. The gnome section discusses what makes gnomes unique.
The myths and gods of the gnomes are explained using mythology and parables to illustrate gnomish philosophy.
