This book has plenty of lovely Irish tunes, and many in the beautiful Irish language, which is a plus. However, as I bought this for my partner, who is only starting to learn the Irish Tin Whistle, it is perhaps not suitable. However, as I have some knowledge of music, I am able to 'translate' it into 'dots' until their is some knowlege there. It has a beautiful cover to it. The only problem I would have with it is that it is not also in the 'dot' form for beginners of the Tin Whistle and maybe also a CD for those who are not familiar with the tunes. Otherwise a nice buy. If you are going to buy this book, I would suggest making sure (as I did not) that you buy the one that includes the CD's, so you can become familiar with the tunes.
