It contains information on technique and style that more advanced players will also find useful. There are over 70 dance tunes and airs suitably arranged for the tinwhistle, including some recently-composed pieces and several unusual settings of old standards.

The pages of this book look like the were printed using a typewriter, and the music is handwritten. It could have really used the work of a professional typesetter. That aside, the content is relevant and the text is well edited and well written. The audio CD that comes with the book is professionally produced. The book starts with some drills, and then moves onto more advanced material. Matching the tracks on the CD and the text in the book was a little confusing. Overall I found it helpful, but I expected more for my money.
