I have been teaching from this book for several years. It's a great book for beginners. Some people need to take the course twice to learn all of it. All of our students must buy the book. We live in an over 55 community and our lessons are free. In order to teach them to play with one another, we won't change books until we can't get this one anymore.
On the left it stated that no ebooks were available. They are, in fact, available in 3 different formats, all from Barbara Seagram's website.
