This book is great the tabs are very authentic and I think its made me a better player because I can now use some of the licks Hendrix used. The songs in the book however are very hard and very complicated, but thats Hendrix for you and there's nothing you can do about that. This book did not come with a CD and it is very similar to most of the other books I have from Hal Leonard, the publisher. One thing I especially like is that there is a full-color section in the front of the book that has many nice pictures of the band or notes Hendrix jotted down, and also tells all of the lyrics without the tabs. the lyrics are alsi included with the tab. Great book.
