This book takes you through from the very basics of the paradiddle, accenting the different strokes, and gradually builds up the complexity by bringing in other pieces of the kit. When you flick through you wonder how you would ever manage some of the stuff towards the end of the book, but because it builds systematically, you find that when you get there, you're ready to tackle it. There are some great sounding patterns in here which have been a fantastic step up in my drumming repertoire.
It does require a basic ability to read drum tab. I got to grips with it eventually, but then this is probably not an absolute beginners book. It's akin to a book of scales but none the worse for it. I'd give it 41/2 stars only I couldn't work out how to give half a star The half mark lost? It's a bit dry, and a key to the tab to remind you what's what would make life easier as my tab reading isn't great. I've got a lot out of it.
