   Great accompaniment to the album
The sheet music matches what I hear in the album, which makes learning the pieces much easier. The book is a representation of what is played as the accompaniment, and that is something I appreciate the most. There are many versions of sheet music that have obvious variations or include the sung melody as part of what is played. This book has given me a great source of material at different levels of difficulty to help me grow from my classical music roots.
   What you hear is what you get!
The best Ben Folds songs are in this book. It's fun to play. I think everything you hear on the CD is the same as the book. A great set of arrangements.
   Great book
If you like Ben Folds, you will love this. These days it is hard to find great piano music.
Love the book. It's the true piano music with vocals, not just playing the melody with your right hand. I wish I was as good as Mr. Folds.
   Great arrangements
Ben's arrangements are so good that you sound like you're actually playing the song as Ben plays it, right? I need to work on each song for a few weeks, which is what I wanted, because the arrangements are hard for me.
   It is a good book but could be better
It is a good book, but could be better. I don't have Prime since Amazon. com doesn't stand behind their mark-up service and has become useless since they started pushing it so much. It doesn't have any easier transcribed songs or several parts to the song which can be learned in steps. Some of the arrangements are quite complicated. It is just standard sheet music so 4 stars, but I think it would have been better if it had fingering or note instructions. The book is solid and has not lost any pages. The binding is a bit tight at first, but the print size is okay.
   Great for all levels of pianists, nice song list.
It was on time. Great list of songs. If I want to simplify the music to play on the spot, I would like the book to have both the chords and the notation. I would recommend this book to both expirienced pianists as well as moderate players who are able to learn to play.
   Great book for any Ben Folds piano players!
His songs are great to listen to. I have never been more pleased with a book. I met Ben after a show earlier in the year and told him how much I'd spent at the piano to play his songs, and he thought I was an idiot for not ordering this book. The detail in the transposition is amazing.
