    This looks like it will be a useful book, filling in things that are left out of some other books. It is a thin book (compared to Flesch, for example), but there is a lot packed into its 62 pages. I had looked at this on another website where I...

    could view the table of contents page, and there is a glaring discrepancy in it, that wasn't obvious until I had the book in hand. The book is organized into 12 units, one for each note in the chromatic scale, and for each unit there are 14 sections. The first section is listed in the table of contents as "Two octave, single note scales and arpeggios", the second as "Four octave, single note scales and arpeggios" In reality, the first section consists of THREE octave, single note scales and arpeggios. It is surprising that no proofreader caught this discrepancy between what is in the table of contents and the actual content of the book, and I mention it because it might be significant to a prospective buyer.
