I'm giving it 5 stars just because there are very few Charlie Parker transcription books out there, and these are pretty accurate.

If you're looking for different ways to improve your jazz playing, then I'd definitely get this book. Every great jazz saxophonist I've ever known has memorized nearly all the solos in this book. Even if you only use it for sight reading, it'll help you get standard bebop licks under your fingers.
Suitable for advanced guitarists

This is a collection of "heads" (melodies), solos, and chord changes to many Charlie Parker songs.
if you are an aspiring jazzer, get this book
There is a ton of useful ideas from a master musician. It would be nice to have some analysis and descriptions in the text, but hey, nothing is perfect...
