I bought this because I spend lots of time listening to Pearl Jam, and lots of time trying to learn how to play songs (especially PJ!). After buying this book and playing along with the album for a couple of hours I realised it was missing some! stuff. In Evenflow, it's missing a riff or two, and in Alive, its missing the riff right before Ed sings "oh, I, I, I'm still alive...". And, the authors of the book left out a whole lot of Alive, come to think of it. Lots of little cool things Mike and Stone do are missing, and its up to me, the inexperienced, to figure it out. And (SIGH) they make it rather hard to figure who's doing what. Instead of clearly demarcating the roles of the guitarists, they rather mishmash it all together. All in all, regardless of the many slight mistakes, this book ...still... gave me a giant step forward in my understanding of how to play Ten. Which is a very good thing!
