    I love Popular performer books. This book has a great selection of beautiful 80s songs. I have been playing piano for 9 years and I found these songs pleasantly difficult. The timing can get pretty tricky if one is not familiar with the songs, but other than that, I have...

    nothing bad to say about this book. The songs allow for some great dynamics as well. Several of the songs have the keys A, E, and B so those that don't like playing in sharps might want to keep that in mind.
