      It's almost impossible to teach yourself to improvise, (well, it was for me) but this book nevertheless provides an excellent grounding in Jazz standards with some really great riffs to add to your repetoire and a lot of interesting information about the various blues scales which is a) vital information for anyone wanting to improvise and b) very interesting for any scholars of music and it's theory. So there are good reasons to buy the book and I'm glad it's in my collection. As I said at the start if you want to really learn to improvise it's best to sit with someone who can - my old teacher was more than happy to help me out - as it'll move your game on far quicker and with more enjoyment (you're playing with someone else) than you can from a book.
