Hal Leonard publishes five different versions of this book. They're all called "Best Songs Ever", they all have an (almost) identical front cover page, and they all have an (almost) identical song list of over 70 songs, but they vary in difficulty from easiest ("E-Z Play Today") up to much more difficult ("Piano/Vocal/Guitar").

At the top center of the front cover page, there are two or three little words which tell you which version you have, as follows, starting with the easiest version, in order of difficulty:

(a) Best Songs Ever - E-Z Play Today
(b) Best Songs Ever - Easy Guitar
(c) Best Songs Ever - Big-Note Piano
(d) Best Songs Ever - Easy Piano
(e) Best Songs Ever - Piano/Vocal/Guitar

Amazon has not made this very clear, and has aggregated together the reviews from several versions, so you can be looking at (e.g.) the web page for the "Easy Piano" version but be reading a review of (e.g.) the "Big-Note Piano" version. Worse still (as of Nov 2013) the "Look Inside" preview pages shown for both "E-Z Play" and "Big Note" are actually pages from the "Easy Piano" version.

Accurate sample pages are available elsewhere, e.g. at sheetmusicplus.com, which also has the list of songs for each version.

Here is a rough comparison of the different versions:

(a) Best Songs Ever - E-Z Play Today:
=============================
Beginning level. Treble clef only, with single-note melody and lyrics (plus chord names for left hand). Very large print. Five treble clefs per page. Most songs fit on two facing pages (just a few are longer and require page-turns). Each note has the note's letter name printed in the circle of the note head. No key signatures, most songs are in the key of C, with a few in easy keys like F or G (with sharps or flats written by the notes whenever needed). Hardly ever uses ledger lines (except middle C). I wish it had suggestions for fingering.

(b) Best Songs Ever - Easy Guitar:
==========================
Treble clef only, with single-note melody and lyrics (plus chord names for guitar or for piano left hand, and fret-board diagrams for guitar chords). Normal size print, up to 7 treble clefs per page. Nearly all songs fit on a single page or two facing pages. Key signatures are mostly C, F, G, D, and A. No suggestions for piano fingering. Although this book is intended for guitar, it's useful as a compact fake book (lead sheet) for chord-style piano.

(c) Best Songs Ever - Big-Note Piano:
============================
Early intermediate level. Bass clef and treble clef. Typically at most two notes for left hand plus one note for right hand (per beat), or similar complexity (plus chord symbols and lyrics). Four grand staffs per page. Some songs fit on two facing pages, but most require a page turn. Key signatures nearly all C, F or G. Includes suggestions for fingering.

(d) Best Songs Ever - Easy Piano:
=========================
Later intermediate level. Same comments as for "Big-Note Piano" (see above), except each song is a bit more difficult in some way. Maybe two notes at the same time in both left hand and right hand, or maybe a broken chord bass line is added, or maybe the song is moved into a key like B-flat (two flats) or D (two sharps).

(e) Best Songs Ever - Piano/Vocal/Guitar:
===============================
Advanced level. Grand staff, plus a separate treble clef for vocal melody and lyrics (plus chord names and fret-board diagram for guitar). Often three or four notes in right hand plus two in left hand, per beat, or similar complexity. Most songs exceed two pages and need page turns. Key signatures are often E-flat (three flats) or similar, but with several in F (one flat) or C or similar.

I'm a true beginner on the piano, and I'm just learning for fun. I've never taken a lesson; I went through 75% of "Adult All-in-one Course" as my introduction, and wanted some better songs to play. I tried several other "beginner" piano books and they were too difficult for me. This is the easiest book I have found, and it has a few decent songs (I figure 5 or 6 songs I like is as much as I can hope for). I even had some of the same songs in other "beginner" books, but these arrangements were much easier. Sure, a different arrangement might be better, but that doesn't do me any good if I can't play it. I hope you can read the included song titles in the attached photos. I also included a few pages of the music, so you can judge for yourself if this book is right for you.

After reading a good number of other reviews on this book, I'm glad to see that no one really had anything negative to say, and that there weren't really any bad ratings. But, I DID notice that some people were making comments that lead me to believe they might not exactly have a strong understanding of how "levels" of printed music are indicated. What I mean is that, several of the reviews mentioned that they didn't expect the arrangements to be "that easy", and that people who have a lot of experience can play much harder arrangements. Well, this book is clearly labeled BIG-NOTE PIANO, which is an indicator of skill level. Big-Note Piano arrangements are for a not-quite-intermediate pianist. Easy Piano arrangements are for intermediate pianists. And, if there is no indicator on the cover, then it's most likely on the upper end of skill. Just thought I should point that out, in case anyone is reading these reviews, and looking to purchase it as a gift for the musician in your life. Why did I only give 4 stars? A personal preference - I have always thought that piano books should be bound with plastic comb binding spines, as traditional binding makes it very difficult to keep books open on the music stand!

It is one of the most wonderful book I have know. It's writen on a amazing way to those music teachers like me, that know very well the music chords and harmony knowledge as a music subject. It has a compilation of the most beautiful and very well know melodies and songs for ever. It is just a musical jewel, I love it. I recomend this book to every pianist, music teacher and professional musician.

my new all time favorite. So many beautiful songs here, i am really enjoying it! i would say 30's through 80's. I took about 3 years of lessons as a child, and have not played at all for the past 22 years. I go the "easy piano" version, which, as another reviewer, explained, is for intermediate players. If you are thinking of buying, please find that review, which explains all the versions of this book, it is very helpful. As a returning pianist, it is easy enough for me to play most on the first try. i have recently been playing randomly in public, and this is a lovely collection for easy listening and pleasing to many ears. I admit that i was never much of a jazz or big band listener, and so some of these songs i had to look up....Duke Ellington and Ella Fitzgerald. Right for me to play at nursing homes, which is nice.
Love Hal Leonard's arrangements but I hate the big note concept. We are just learning-- doesn't mean we are blind. The big notes mean lots of page turns. Wish they would offer the same book in regular note size.
I'm a beginner, took piano lessons for 3 months and have tried to advance in my piano skills on my own without a lot of luck. BUT, when I opened this book, it inspired me to start practicing on a regular basis. It was easy to follow even with my "bottom of the barrel" piano skills.
