These books are fun and easy. The best thing about them is that they include 3 lines of music, the melody and chords, the notation, and the tab. They are not brilliant arrangements (not even credited) but they sound nice and are as easy as possible in terms of an intermediate arrangement. Some songs work better than others because vocal lines are tricky to put down for guitar (I wing the rhythms sometimes). I use them a lot while teaching. Buy them for a fun time but not be too picky.
