Good Points

  • Standard Notation including Tablature
  • Left and Right hand fingering included. Which save you the trouble of figuring out.
  • Accessible to Beginner levels. Pieces are from simple to intermediate.
  • Audio Cd included with Ben Bolt demonstrating on every piece.
  • Spiral Bound, easy to lay flat

Bad Points

  • Vague Title of Pieces. ie. Arpeggio in A can better named as Opus 60 No 9 in A
  • Some Carcassi History and Info would be nice.

Final Words
I would Recommend this book for beginners to intermediate levels. For those totally new to Classical. Matteo Carcassi is a great starting point. A lot of pieces are short enough to digest being a single page. This book helps one develop better techniques as some of Matteo Carcassi etudes are also included though the naming convention of these pieces can be better.
