This is a well constructed book. The layout is professional and easy to read. Each play-along/song selection includes a nice section of background and key components of the style. The drumset charts are clean, and include a separate section that isolates the key grooves to help the drummer isolate the individual grooves. The included cd is a welcome addition. I would prefer in this age if the tracks could simply be downloaded digitally with purchase, but that is obviously an issue beyond this specific book.
