A great book for the complete beginner. If you already what style of banjo playing you want to learn then maybe this isn't the best book - but if you want a basic introduction to the many and varies ways of getting music from a banjo then buy it. Bluegrass, blues, classical, frailing, 'Seeger style' are all introduced along with some music theory, banjo history etc.
Some of the content is a bit dated and the presentation is 'quirky' to say the least but overall a good buy.
