First the bad points. There is hardly any explaination at all in the book. It merely has two pages of text before it dives in to the exercises. There is also this dubious bit about sixteenths in jazz. This book suggests that they too are 'swung'. Plenty of others say play them straight. Basically the book is a set of rhythms arranged to deal with eight notes, triplets etc etc. Each exercise deals with all sorts of possible combinations. The trouble is that they don't represent the sort of stuff you would expect to have to play.
My preferred method for the book is to practice say four bars in a loop so that this might replicate an actual passage of music rather that the twenty or so bars that comprise each exercise.
It's not that expensive and saves you the effort of writing the stuff out yourself but it's a pity that it didn't offer more help.

There's a lot to get to grips with in this book and it will take me some time to work through. However, I believe that if I persevere, I shall be a better player by the time that I reach the end of the book.

The guys were looking for this book by Louis Belson. I said I can get it quicker on the net. So I did and they are pleased with my effort

I think it's good. I'll let you know if I ever learn to read music

A drummer's dream book. Might be difficult to understand for a new reader, but with help of a drum teacher all will become clear. Drum notation is a fascinating subject and this book will certainly help the aspiring drummer to develop his/her sight reading skills.
