Cigar Box Guitarist Shaq Collins writes:

In each book Ben will first give you an introduction not only to the book but the history of the songs within. It sets a scene of the world at the time of these songs. You get an idea of why the songs were written to begin with. Ben then goes on to give a lesson on how to read these songs. Some people may know very well how to read chords and tablature but somewhere out there these books may be someone's very first song book so I find it a very nice touch. Another thing I do like, which I have seen other books be guilty of in the past, is the larger type size. Ben has ensured that these books be very easy to read and follow. One thing I will say is a huge plus in each of his books is the page layout. Although there are chord charts in the beginning of each book, each song will have not just the chords displayed that you will need to play them but diagrams of how to play them so there is no need to flip back and forth to make sure you're fingers are where they’re supposed to be. If you’re umming and ahing about getting one of Ben's books, you’d be wise to do so because there are few better feelings than learning how to play a song you love then absolutely nailing it.
