    I do. I think it is good for a beginner if one have the patience to go through all the combinations. It gives you a good exposure to the basic combinations, normal and odd time signatures, and rudiments. My instructor actually expands the exercises by mixing/substituting the basic hhat, snare and bass with the toms, cymbals and cowbell. It is frustrating sometimes because I will spend weeks on one page because of endless combinations.

    The 4/4 time (first several pages) progressively increases in difficulty but one thing good about it is that it builds up from the previous exercises. Following the page sequence seems logical when learning. There are occasional areas where there seems to be no logic but overall it can be followed page by page. On these non-progressive parts my instructor jumps from page to page so I can start from easy exercises and gradually build up on it. Rothman probably have his own teaching system when he wrote the book.

    In the 4/4 time exercises using 8th notes, these are basic beats and I'm essentially limited to the snare, hhat, and base, except for the the occasional crash/ride hit on downbeat of 1. The combinations beyond those 3instruments happened when I started using sixteenth notes, odd time meters, and rock breaks(drum fills). I was encouraged to make reasonably sounding combinations and be creative using the entire drumset as long as I don't screw up the timing.

    Yeah Rothman has another good book called Basic Drumming which is an excellent book. I started on that but even an experienced drummer would appreciate it.

    It is a good place to pick up some patterns for your riffs if you are tired of your standard ones. As I go along my instructor would occasionally tell me that what I am playing is the riff or pattern used by the drummer of this x band. This is not a pure rock book since a few can be used in jazz, latin or ballroom music. I am not quite familiar with drumming patterns of these last three types of music but I'll find it out soon since I am finishing up this book and moving to the fundamentals of jazz.

    Overall, it is still a book for the novice and not really sure if it will satisfy an advanced drummer. It is a simple book but a good instructor can get a lot from it by mixing up the combinations of instruments to play. A one measure pattern of simple snare drum fill can have so many variations if it is mixed with the rest of the drumset.
