I also have to wonder about the song selection.
- Astronomy Domine (the Ummagumma arrangement, not the Piper one)
- Burning Bridges
- Childhood's End
- Cirrus Minor
- Echoes (mostly just the verses)
- Embryo (the Works version, not how they played it live in 1970-1)
- Fat Old Sun
- Gnome, The
- Gold It's In The...The
- Grantchester Meadows
- Green Is The Colour
- One of These Days
- Pillow Of Winds, A
- San Tropez
- Saucerful of Secrets, A
- See Emily Play
- Set The Controls for the Heart of the Sun
- Us And Them
- Wots...Uh The Deal
There are some excellent selections here, but also some head-scratchers.
Emily Play is here but Arnold Layne is not. The main theme from Saucerful of Secrets is here but the main theme from Interstellar Overdrive is not. Cymbaline, which was frequently played live from 1969-1971, is left off but the inconsequential See-Saw and Cirrus Minor are there. Half of Obscured by Clouds is here, but not its most popular song, Free Four. I'm really unsure what went into this decision-making process.
I would have to recommend the more recent book Pink Floyd: Echoes (Pink Floyd). It has a better selection of songs (with a lot of overlap with this collection) and also some interesting artwork. However, if you can't find what you're looking for there, you might find it here.
Although the cover appears the same there are 13 less songs in it covering over 40 less pages of music. I bought the replacement only to find that it didn't have the songs I was looking for. I was sure they were in there. I found the original book 2 weeks later in a pile of sheet music and in fact the songs were in there. There is a 130 or so page one, this one, and a 180 or so page one, the original, both with the same cover by the same company. Hal Leonard publishing, you need to fix this deception. Either change the cover or go back to the old song list. I believe there are 3 songs in this one that weren't in the original.

Great songbook! Buy a copy and learn Pink Floyd songs. I highly recommend this one, good for beginning musicians. Adios!Published on December 14, 2013 by Audie
This seems to be the best Floyd book for me; standard notation, tab and diagrammed chords above the measures and staff.Published on February 26, 2012 by Steven R. Jernigan
