Within a month of solid (1 hour a day) practice of the first page I began to sound so much better. Of all the drumming books this one has had the greatest impact in my playing. Practicing from it is a bit like meditation - no obvious benefits from doing it - but then a couple of days later your drumming has changed in some incomprehensible way (for the better).
The book will reveal your weaknesses and the endless pages of potential exercises means that you will have a lifetime of weaknesses to work on.
You will get better and you do need to use this book if you take learning this instrument seriously. Definitely the best drumming book by far.
The hardest part is discplining yourself to do the exercises. I would highly recommend it to beginners like me.

I can start to see why professional drummers everywhere recommend this book. Get the basics right, and you can play anything.
JUST A WARNING ON THE KINDLE EDITION!
It's not really a "kindle" edition, in that you can only read it on the kinda apps on phone and tablet. It WON'T deliver to a normal kindle or the cloud reader, which is quite annoying.
Due to the smaller screen I am forced to read it off (unless you have an iPad pro!) I have to keep stopping to pan or flip the page. Other reviews have said the staple book copy isn't printed WELL, so I'm not entirely sure what the best way to obtain this book is.
This book is a must for any drummer, beginner to pro!
All the exercises are written for hands but you can easily apply them for feet too (which works) if you are a double kick pedal user or not.
By working through these absolute fundamentals, the student will erode major barriers to their self-expression and be able to do what they want without worrying whether their hands can keep up. The exercises require discipline, hard-work and time. That is the reality of art and the reward for following this book is a more mature and unrestricted relationship with the intrument we all love.
Overall I think this is a really good book and I would recommend it to anyone
