The second edition of "Rhythm Reading" is a thorough revision that improves upon its predecessor throughout. The book contains a variety of exercises and musical examples, and the author addresses several important notational topics that are neglected in competitive texts. However, shortcomings in the pedagogy, and a failure to address several issues of rhythmic performance found in the standard music literature, limit the usefulness of this text beyond the introductory stages.
