Some pieces are familiar from past guitar lessons some new but compilation and commentaries are excellent. Selected pieces develop various skills needed for enjoyable playing. Many difficulties forgotten during the years are rediscovered, and this is a good - or bad - thing depending on your state of mind.
I like given fingerings as they help the player prepare for the next position in time. These markings are usually forgotten but can be very useful. As a hobby guitarist I like also the progressive nature of the selected studies. All in all I like this book a lot.
