I would recommend the book, especially the larger book and accompanying CD for someone looking for an introduction to tube-based guitar amplifiers. There is a lot of good material, but is by no means a complete reference; if you want to know of *every* Fender tube amp made, for example, there is another book that only covers Fender. As an overall survey book, I found it quite good. If you then want to go into building or fixing tube-based guitar amplifiers, Gerald Weber has a very good DVD and accompanying book that will give you a good grounding (no pun intended). Ted Weber, Mike Marsh and Mojo Musical are also good sources for more detailed tube amplifier guidance and/or parts.

Be warned that the image quality of the circuit schematics printed in this edition is for the most part: TERRIBLE. Zooming in on the pdf's of the schematics on the cd-rom or even looking at the printed ones in the book will leave you angry and frustrated as many of them are simply illegible. The values of resistors et al are IMPOSSIBLE to see in many of them. I have the 4.1 edition and will have to hang onto it as the images printed there are FAR superior to those in the new edition. It's a shame that the Quality Control is so poor in this critical publication. Did no-one check this out before it was shipped for production?
