        The book itself seems to be clearly and well thought out and set out, but UK readers should note that it is written in American English eg quarter note for crochet, measure for bar. That is not really troublesome. The MP3 CD/CD-ROM is another matter. While the content is potentially useful, access is far from easy. It will not play on a standard CD player, one set of tracks is available on a CD player with an MP 3 facility and the other on a Blu-Ray player/recorder, but neither on both. Gaining access to the music on a PC except one track at a time is not easy. I eventually did so by trial and error by highlighting all the tracks on a list and pressing play. That after selecting the appropriate format. All this makes the CD very unattractive to use and diminishes the usefulness of the whole.
