    I bought this book for the Piano Man arrangement. The arrangement is 13 pages long. The standard version (Sheet music, Complete Billy Joel Volume One, Best of Volumes 1 & 2) is 5 pages. In the 13 pages you get the piano solos and inserts and the harmonica intros and the...

    piano intro. But, there are sharps missing and the voicing is not clearly shown - the melody is sometimes beneath the highest note and sometimes moves between voices. Get a pencil and put in what you need. It also helps to add bar numbers to the piece and enhance the directions with them. Not necessarily better than the standard. Not a copy I expect will fall apart from continuous use.
