I like the content and have learnt a few of the songs but it is very hard to appreciate the book to its highest level. The reasons for this are:- the book is hardback so it doesn't stand properly and the notes are too small.

Although this book has a wonderful range of songs, I was really disappointed when it arrived to find it only has the right hand melody line for the piano. Ok, so that's great if you want to pick out the tune, but I quite fancied playing the pieces.
For me this is more of a history of music book, with the music as an add on. It has a great description of music from different eras and includes some wonderful old and more recent tunes. It's also a lovely photographic scrap book.
But on balance, for me, it was the sort of book that I would have put back on the shelf if I'd been in a store. I'm just too lazy to return it by post! Anonymous
