I had paid full price for this at my local B&N, at that price I was satisfied so it's an even better deal at only $7.00 online. It's cheap enough for anyone who is thinking about or wants to learn guitar but not sure if they want to spend the big $$$ to invest in other more comprehensive self-paced guitar instruction courses. I'm in my early 40's and had wanted to take up the guitar again after giving my 7 y.o. son a kid sized one this past Christmas. I had not touched a guitar since my late teens. Back then I had only learned a few simple chords on my own and gave up as the books back then were not easy to use and no self-checks. I was impressed that this book is very methodical, covers all the major chords and that just about every page is illustrated with B&W photos. It assumes you are a beginner who knows nothing about guitars. The dvd provides the proper guiding visuals and the 2 cd's provide the various audios and tunes to play along in each lesson as a self-check. Both the dvd and cd also allows you to check that your guitar is in tune.
