A modern method for guitar - What do you think of this book?

I got this book today and must say that i am very impressed with the quality of information that is in this book. I saw in guitar world a 'survival guide for guitarists' and john Petrucci said that this was a good book. I was curious to find what you all think of this book.

P.S the author is William Levitt and is published by Berklee Press

A modern method for guitar

I think the 'Modern Method' Series is pretty much the standard for guitar instruction in collegiate music programs.

I have earlier revisions of the books from way back and thought they were very thorough for what they presented. Good books imo.
