This is a gorgeous book that could be used as a coffee table book, but is a fully functional book of easy classical piano sheet music. I'm using it in my piano lessons (I'm an adult beginner). The spiral binding makes it lie flat when opened to a specific song. Some beautiful pieces of music in this book--classic pieces that will be recognized. The illustrations are beautiful but do not interfere with the sheet music. I can't recommend this book enough.

Like that the book is spiral bound, but these pieces are for true piano beginners. Most of the songs are just a couple of notes and aren't in the real key or even consist of the entire piece. It's a fun book for kids starting out or adults who are learning. Not for more experienced players.

I like this book. It's from the U.K. and is not distributed in the U.S., so that's why copies are so expensive.

These are low-level piano classics, all of them simplified. I would say about level 3 for most of them. For example, there will be minuets from Anna Magdalena, but the ornaments (even the staccatos) will be removed. The difficulty seems to progress as one works one's way through the book, though the increase is only slight and so this might be my imagination.

The book, I think, is not designed for serious use, though it does come spiral-bound. There are no instructions or comments on the pieces, and the pages are all colored dark pastels. There is a nice little historical blurb for every piece.

One thing that's super-great is that while the book does not come with a CD, there is a link to a site where you can download sound files of all the pieces in the book to hear how they're supposed to sound. The sound files are just the pure piano, which is nice. I hate it when it's the piano with other distracting instruments in the background.

There's much better fare than this if you actually want to sit down and go through the book.

Nevertheless, I would recommend this book for special occasions, such as if you have a student who's graduated from grade 4 to 5 and you'd like to get him a special gift.

I'm an adult who has been learning for years. But it's really challenging for me, and many of the 'easy' books aren't. I was getting pretty frustrated, but this book is great. The songs are pretty and you can add chords or octaves if you want to make them more advanced.
