A great book for guitarists

Comments about Backbeat Books Riffs: How to Create and Play Great Guitar Riffs (Book/CD):

I got this book for my son about a month ago, and he finished it within a week. It tells how to write riffs very well and how to revise them. It comes with a CD. It also has a gallery of songs that have particular riffs in them, so if you want to hear what a certain riff sounds like, you just listen to the song that is stated in the book. It also talks about each song in detail.
