This song book of Leonard Cohen songs is superb.
To get 70 of his greatest songs all in one volume at such a reasonable price is remarkable.
Only quibble is when I found that one of my recent favourites "Anthem" has only the first verse shown: there are three more wonderful verses omitted!
Otherwise, whole-heartedly recommended, for both old and new would-be Cohen crooners and croakers...

I like Leonard Cohen, this book has songs based over his vast career, I haven't the book very long, but with the amount of time I've had it, it has brought me a lot of joy, there is a lot of songs from the 'greatest hits', album and 'songs of love and hate' and 'various positions'. Buy it!

What a songbook to have in your pocket, on your mind, with your guitar. I play them quietly on my patio with the sun going down and the calm of evening in my melancholic heart.
I bought this for the song "Dance me to the end of love" that I heard sung by Madelaine Peyroux but I have sung practically all of them, even the downers! What a rare talent, human; fragile, vulnerable, vindictive and above all loving.
Leonard Cohen is the sort of man I would like to have come to my fantasy dinner party and we could all catterwall into the wee hours.

Excellent. All the best known Cohen songs, a lot of songs in a very small book, pocket sized but big enough to read clearly. Only slight fault is that it doesn't stay open on its own- I have to put something on it to hold the pages open. other than that I can't fault it.

After we were at his concert in Gent last summer, we were happy to be able to reread the texts which we ha d not always understood from beginning to end.

Just received this book. I am new to the guitar - this was recommended as a very good book to use to learn with.

Although it is nice to see the chords and tabs as laid out in the book - it is, I think, somewhat limited in it's use.

For instance - Hallelujah has been taught to me using a specific picking pattern. Am I to understand that all these songs are to be strummed?
