The book's scope is far too broad for a beginner book. It starts with notes and scales and ends with composing for orchestra. I was really looking for a book that more throughly explained beginner concepts, like what does it mean for something to be written in a certain key, for example. Beginner topics are covered, but in too few pages and in a manner that is a little too abstract for a beginner.
