I'm a fan of the "For Dummies" books on subjects that I know nothing about. They can bring you up to speed on a subject if you really don't know the ends and outs and want a good overview, so that you can jump right in.
Well that is what this book does. If you are a long time fan of the blues and know the history of the blues all that way back to Charlie Patton, then this might not be for you. But if you are looking for a comprehensive book that is well written by knowledgeable and enthusiastic blues musicians, than this is the book for you.
The book covers early and modern blues artist, where to find blues music, it gives some hints on how to play blues music, and how to throw a blues party. All an all this is a great read for most fans of the blues.
