I found this book extremely interesting. The culture and history behind Irish Dancing is fascinating and written down correctly and comprehensively in this book. Not being a dancer myself,I found the second half of the book less interesting, but the first part more then made the book worth the price. The second part would be invaluable to beginner dancers as it is clearly laid out and straight forward.
