If you've ever wanted to learn how to play Amanda Palmer's music (and even enhance your improv and learning-by-ear skills), then this book is perfect for you. It's basically just a collection of piano sheet music of all of the songs from Amanda Palmer's album "Who Killed Amanda Palmer?", complete with guitar tabs. Unlike her other sheet music collections, however, this book lacks in any information on the making of the album or on Amanda's personal insights, and only has about two or three pages of pictures. However, that's probably what makes it so great for us straightforward folks - if you bought this book for the sheet music to learn to play Palmer's songs on the piano/guitar, and for nothing else, then this is perfect for you. If you were expecting song explanations and insight and pictures, don't buy this.
For me, as a piano player, I found the sheet music to be very helpful in learning the song and, as I said before, it really helps you develop improv skills, because much of the music is repetitive with difficult chords and strange tempos that you can never really mimic exactly as it is printed. The music's difficulty, I would rank from low-intermediate to fairly difficult, depending on the song.
