I have played for years, and my two sons, ages 11 and 7, wanted to learn. I bought this book as a guide for them and it has been very helpful. Remember, it is for "Absolute Beginners". Anyone who has played before will not learn much from this, but it is a good staring point for anyone who hasn't played.
This was my first form of instruction( a few weeks before I got lessons from a teacher). Extremely easy and helpful. Too simple, though. One lesson with a teacher rendered this book near useless. But in terms for the absolute beginner, ya it can help you learn.
This is the most helpful book for learning guitar i've ever read. I learned everything I know about guitar from this book. The one I got didn't come with a CD but it was still ok. I still learned a lot from it. This book teaches you Tablature, The basics of reading music, and really basic songs. I would also recommend the Absolute Beginner book 2.
