Except for one thing.
The contents page.
This should not be a gripe, but clearly the page was written by someone slapping their genitals at a random number generator, which is why we have:
Jaws of life: p17. Ok. Sensible place to start. Page 1 tends to be standard, but we'll go with this.
Glasgow Kiss: p23. I see where you're going here.
Tunnel Vision: p17 again somehow, indicating some hideous overlay of deformity tab.
Wishful thinking: p20. So, what, this is in the middle of two different pieces from before?
Damage Control: p27. Great, we're back on track, except we're on the 5th track of 8 in a 168 page book.
Curve: p15. Wait, why are we back he-
Lost Without You: p13 WHERE ARE YOU GOING, NUMBERS?
Animate-Inanimate: p30. Ah. A reasonable conclusion, I guess.
Seriously, it's a brilliant tab, but without the song names at the bottom of the pages and a contents page like this it really doesn't want you to know where the hell to look for anything.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
John Petrucci is a master and this book highlights many techniques that can be used in many different styles. If you want to learn some impressive sweeps, legato runs, string skipping and killer alternate picking you need this. But this can help with the rhythm also. And it is not just playing as fast as you can on each song, many slower, soulful, tasteful stuff there that can inspire your own playing or give you some chops that will impress your audience. Many exercises here that can improve your speed and good for warm ups as well. And he has some really cool heavy stuff here that other instrumental artists don't do (Satriani, Vai). Petrucci is the heaviest shredder out there. But a very diverse album, very underrated album.
Amazing resource, buy it.
I haven't studied Petrucci's playing in video that much so I cannot make too much comment about whether or not the tabs are wrong, but at least the notes sound more or less correct to me on Glasgow Kiss, Damage Control and Jaws of Life, as those are the tracks i've been concentrating on the most.
