For me, I can't give a high rating because of the content of the songs presented. I would have liked to see more of the campfire type of songs that most of have tried to sing but the words got lost or changed. You know, were everyone is just in a light mood and enjoying a nite singing songs!
If the buyer of this book is just looking for songs to transpose into their style of music, there are certainly enough songs presented. I'm just not sure that many of these songs could be updated to new standard of words and music that can be enjoyed at the campfire sing alongs in 2008 and longer. Sorry, but that's my feelings about this book.

First off, there are more songs than you can imagine! It's great to search by name or location of origination, etc. Most are done with simple chords so if you have a limited knowledge of fancy chords there will be lots of songs for you to enjoy playing.
I love the binder which allows for the book to lay flat without the pages flipping around.
This book is titled to go along with Hal Leonard's "Fake" book series for, primarily, composed and copyrighted songs. But these are folk songs: some have a known composer, but all are in the public domain. Nevertheless, this is not some careless collection of picked-over trash; for whatever reason, the editors felt they should do a good job on these humble tunes of the people. They went to the original versions as they could find them, and included all the known verses (unless there were more than twelve...). Good show!
Great price, too.
