    This book is a wonderful resource, but not necessarily for accurately portraying the music. The piano part listed is an embellished chord melody, which works great if you want to play the song without vocals, but which isn’t what Stevie is playing on keys. I haven’t gone through everything (obviously! There’s 75 tunes!), but I know “You Are the Sunshine of My Life” is in the key of C where Stevie plays it in B and that the intro is not quite right on. I can only imagine it is the same for other tunes. That said, as far as I can tell, they have the right chord changes and that’s something that has always thrown me off when trying to transcribe Stevie’s work from records. Simply having all the chord changes is invaluable to me and a great learning tool. I’ve seen a book advertised that is 12 note-for-note transcriptions that will probably satisfy those who want to learn what he’s playing, but if you aren’t too concerned with playing HIS voicings in the exact same key, this book can be a lot of fun.

    This book is great if you want to play the piano and the singing melody on the piano at the same time. What I didnt like about the book was exactly that. I wanted to play the songs on piano like on the cd. Not with the singing on the piano. It makes it harder to play it than if you were just playing the chords like stevie wonder does.

    I have been looking for a comprehesive overview of Sevie’s music for piano for quite some time. This book gives a nice coverage of his songs during his career up till 1998. All songs are in the original settings, so certainly not for beginners. The only pity is the fact that the songs are in alphabetical order. I would have preferrred to have them ordered in chronological order per album.
