To be fair, it seems this “book” was meant to be in a digital format. It includes some interesting video links and has a multimedia look to it. But I certainly didn’t feel it was worth ten dollars plus shipping costs for the print edition. At only 80 pages, the content is skimpy and repetitive. Almost every page has spelling or grammatical errors. Belying the subtitle, the approach is more anecdotal and philosophical, rather than scientific.
As a beginning student of music, I found the attempts to differentiate rhythm, meter and time signature unclear. The most interesting aspect is the discussion of entrainment, or groove. More experienced musicians may find this useful for connecting to their music and audience. For students of any level, the topic of overcoming self-awareness is critical, but lacks depth and practical detail here.
It really grates at me that somebody could have the arrogance to write something and charge money for it before it has even been completed.
I want my money back. Take back your book, and I will buy it when you are finished writing it.
