    "Best" - No, Biggest - Maybe

    This thing is huge!! It has over a 1,000 songs from almost every genre: rock, jazz, country, swing, etc. I've never even heard of a lot of the songs here! It is well printed in clear typeset...not the handwritten, jazz notation of some other books. Those are the pluses.

    The biggest minus I've found is that the transcriptions aren't rythmically faithful to the original. Everything seems to be written with straight 1/8's even when the song is supposed to be swung. Other rhythm's seem like a guess. If you're not familiar with the song, what you play/read from this book is likely not give you any clue what it's supposed to sound like. Chord changes and melody seem (from the limited songs I've looked at) to be as accurate as most other fake books.

    All in all, not bad. Just be sure you know the song you're working on or you may end up with something completely different.
