This seems to be a neglected gem of a book. I came to the mandolin after a few years of playing the violin (badly). I quickly acquired a small collection of beginners guides which seem (to my fiddler's ear) to put undue emphasis on bluegrass and playing chords. This book, however, is much more what I was looking for: a comprehensive collection of music from a wide variety of repertoires, written both in standard notation and TAB. If you haven't any idea about the mandolin then you will need a more basic guide, but once you've got going this offers a good selection of exercises as well as some pretty good music!

Don't expect any information on chords. Disappointing since this is the main issue I was hoping to have explained.
