This book is great for just flying through it and feeling good that you learned so much from the book before. Also for Warm ups. Don't get the book if you have already read a few books already. Otherwise, you will be wasting your money.
This is by far one of the most popular books for drummers. It is a best-seller year after year. I have to be honest; I feel all of the hype on the book is not as worthy as some may think.

Sometimes it's hard to find books for intermediate level. It is is typically really easy to find books everywhere that's based on finding books for the beginner.
