Spiral binding is great. Good preamble for those new to guitar but page guides and way of classification good for those of us needing a refresher and/or as self-taught never knew what to call the things we do with our fingers sometimes.

I gave thiis handy book a five, its a nice size that can easily fit into my pocket. It has coil binding that allows the pages to remain open all the time for quick reference. Even got a book mark with my order, which is a bonus.

It's a great quick reference for chords. It would still be good to understand music theory like basic chord construction like 1-3-5 (major), 1-3b-5 (minor), and so on.

Bloated with information but in a very good format. Gave me a new appreciation for Roy Clark and his abilities!
