    There are not many publicly-available books on Chöd practice, so from that perspective this book is an invaluable resource no matter which tradition one practices. Also, there are obviously many common elements running through the various Chöd traditions, and this speaks well to those underpinnings.That said, this is a distinctly Gelug approach, and as a Nyingma practitioner myself I found a very few elements either jarring or simply inapplicable. Easy enough to ignore those. Also, like most tantric practices, one must really learn from a qualified teacher; texts are a supplement to, not a replacement for, direct instruction. This is particularly obvious in this case: while the notes regarding melodies for specific segments of the practice may be useful for those who have been instructed, I see no way anyone could possibly construct them properly from the text sound-unheard. (Supposedly, there are CD recordings available from this tradition, I have not looked into those.)Bottom line: if you're not overly sectarian in your approach, and you've had some Chöd transmission and instruction, this is a very worthwhile supplement to your studies. If you are curious about the practice and want to see if you might be interested without a large investment, this might do the trick. Otherwise: move along, nothing to see here.
