I bought this large paperback book for a young friend (20's) just getting started in music. If you're a music buff, anything to do with the subject is interesting, including this nice 1/2" thick large paperback. Nice large printing, it is a good elementary book for beginners. It arrived very fast. No complaints. Wasn't "new" but musicians aren't concerned with appearances. I cleaned it up just a bit and was satisfied. I know Jon's enjoying it. A good introductory book on the subject of hand drums.
