Great book for musical theory! I love the fact that you can write on the book as it makes the learning process quite interactive. Additionally, the book has a large range of topics and is not too expensive. I'd really recommend this book, especially to adults who want to learn more about music theory! This book motivates you to learn and will definately help you on your musical path :)
