4.0 out of 5 stars The spirit is willing, but the binding is weak, March 1, 2004
This review is from: Pink Floyd: Division Bell Guitar Tablature Edition (Paperback)
I'd like to first warn those who purchase this book to be aware of how weak its binding is. The first time you expose it to a hot car in the summer may well be your last if you're not careful! I very nearly destroyed the binding that way within moments after purchase--the glue simply wasn't able to withstand this, and with such heavy paper as this is printed on, the result was nearly cracking the book in half. As it is, it barely holds together at "Wearing the Inside Out" (the first thing I opened it to). This is an oversight on the part of the publisher, if you ask me, to use such heavy paper and then such weak binding for it. But don't blame the band for it, or those who put the book together, of course...
The review below has many legitimate points, to which I would like to add from a slightly different perspective. I am not very advanced with the guitar, and I'd call myself a mid-level amateur keyboardist. Accuracy is definitely a plus here; having spent a great deal of time looking at Internet tabs, I can make the fairly qualified statement that you will get a much more accurate transcription here than you can find on the Internet--especially when dealing with the more intricate chord structures authored by Richard Wright. The discriminating ear will be satisfied here. So will the eye--aside from the binding problem, what is IN the book is presented wonderfully, both the artwork and the songs themselves are pleasing to look at. From a player's perspective, though, I will say that the comments about the difficulty level are correct, and also that this doesn't provide all a keyboardist may need--although it does provide invaluable hints at it.

Can you provide the song list for this book? I've been looking for a book tablature for Coming Back to Life but can't find it. Thanks.

Hopefully it does contain Coming Back to Life since that's a Division Bell track..

Yeah it does. And this book is in the easy to read guitar tablature version.
It contains all the songs from the Division Bell album even though they are not listed in the product description / details.
