I received a pair of turntables and a mixer for Christmas last year, and this book got me off my rear end and got me practicing. I mastered beat matching in one night.
The book is very easy to follow. The records that come along with it are great, too.
I heard the author on NPR and he was cutting Richard Nixon saying "I am not a crook," which is right off of the records that come with this book!
I also learned about Grandmaster Flash, Qbert and Craze from the interviews and history section.
Well worth the price!

I have probably all of the books on DJing that are out there, and this is my favorite. It comes with two 12" records that contain a wide band of white noise (like a continuous "Ahhhhh" sample) that really help you ease into skratching. I've been DJing for years now, and I still use that track.
There is also a very cool acid jazz track which has a Miles Davis muted trumpet vibe going which you can beat match with an R&B style track---I never could get the hang of beat matching until I bought this book/record set. This really made it easy.
The other technique this book helped me with better than any other source I could find is the crab scratch. The exercises break it down into very easy to follow steps, and by practicing slowly and speeding it up a little at a time, my crabs are now even and clean.
I think maybe this book throws off some people who are expecting it to read like a copy of Source magazine---it's refreshingly free of trendy lingo and the silly posturing that often accompanies the DJ scene. It also treats the turntable as a musical instrument, which some DJs still have a problem with. It helped me a lot, and like I said, I still use the records--there are a lot of good synth and spoken word samples on them as well!

Don't bother with this book; I bought it and was totally disappointed. Buy the book listed below instead, it's thick, full of information on all aspects on DJ'ing form beat-matching to equalizing to matching jeys, etc .. and it's even fun to read.
How to DJ Right: The Art and Science of Playing Records by Frank Broughton, Bill Brewster

This is for people who don't know what a turntable or a mixer is.. People who have never heard of DJing before..
