    Spoiler Alert! This review is about the content of the book, not with difficulties printing it (I had no trouble at all printing the pdf) or problems with the website download. Strictly about content. This book, as it is, is great as a backbone for linear drumming, especially for incorporating the hi-hat pulse to provide you with rudimentary four way coordination. Going through each lesson one by one will give you a great foundation for working around the kit. Don't be afraid to take it a step further. Where you see a four note hand combo, R L R L, switch it up to an inverted paradiddle on different sound sources, and you'll get a beautiful bit of groove. Then play the 16th note linear triplet grooves as fills against the quarter note grooves and you'll be working in practice with time signatures. In the book, Mike Johnston has saved you a great bit of effort in trying to find the best triplet combinations to make a great groove or fill, and like he says in his videos, he gives you... More > the blueprint, "you have to build the house." So, he gives you an excellent composite system to free up your limbs around the kit, and a great backbone to flesh it out with your imagination with these grooves. This book has been an excellent resource for me and I'd definitely recommend it to any one else looking to improve their transitions within time signatures, four way coordination, and freedom around the kit. As with anything, this stuff takes time, so give it time and you'll see the rewards. In my humble opinion.< Less
