Sigma and Pi bonds are talked about on page 120 of the 6th edition. (Chapter 4)
the shorter the bond, the stronger it is. And triple bonds are shorter than double bonds which are shorter than single bonds. (triple < double < single) And anything more than a single bond has at least one pi bond. (for example, a triple bond is 1 sigma and 2 pi bonds) So I guess you could say the presence of a pi bond indicates a stronger bond than just a sigma bond alone.
