        Not for novices - it is somewhat jumbled in appearance and layout, and doesn't take you through a logical "journey". The content is good but it needs a re-write by someone who is better at explanations.

        The scale structures were most helpful and enabled me to work out any jazz scale from the root tone.
        The scales were in a ver small font and difficult to read and play at the same time. Being in landscape form meant I couldn't use it on my music stand.

        Very well organised and thorough. Has a cool backing cd too.
        Fairly wordy. Necessarily so at times, but could be hard for someone without a solid theory base to build on.
