I have other Sokolow books and found them very good, but I was not impressed by this one. The book has strumming arrangements of the tunes, plus solos, and it is the solos I felt let down by. Sokolow pretty much ignores the high G string on the ukulele, and does faux guitar solos on the other three strings. Which, for me, pretty much defeats the object of playing the uke. If you want to explore the possibilities of playing blues on a ukulele, you would be much better off buying Del Rey's Blue uke DVD. She uses all four strings, and finds a proper ukulele blues sound.

I have been playing a couple of months and learned all the basic chords
and had learnt a few easy songs and wanted to step up a gear.
In my mind I wanted to play jazz and blues and this book is perfect
with great blues standards as well as some jazzy numbers and some ragtime.
At the moment I am concentrating on just two of the songs and I am
becoming pretty good at them.
The songs are quite challenging but with practise you will learn them.
Its a lovely book with cd to listen to how songs are played.
Each song has the chords plus some solos which sound excellent and make you
look quite accomplished.
You wont be dissapointed.

As with other Sokolow books, this is let down only by his hammy, out of tune singing. Apart from that, the included pieces are great fun. Some are difficult, some are easy to master and all are a good addition to you repertoire.

I got this for my brother as a gift and he seems to like it. I couldn't tell you much about the content as it wasn't for me!
