I am using shortoc package to create a brief contents page for my book.

I used the command:

\shorttoc{\sffamily BRIEF CONTENTS}{1} 

to create it so only the sections are displayed without the subsections.

Now I need to unbold the section headings. Is there a way to do it with the shortoc package?

Here is a solution based on etoolbox package.

\patchcmd{\shorttoc}{\@startshorttoc {toc}}{{\let\bfseries\normalfont\@startshorttoc {toc}}}{}{}

\shorttoc{\sffamily BRIEF CONTENTS}{1} 
\section{Foo bar}
