Here's what has been said about Essential Sightreading Studies for Electric Bass series:
I highly recommend Dave Motto's book to anyone trying to get their
reading together. The method is so clear that with a little diligent
study, even a beginner should be sightreading in no time.
VICTOR BAILEY

... an excellent method for up-and-coming bassists--a must read!
WILL LEE

... I think David Motto's book is a very good vehicle for bass players to
strengthen their sightreading. If you take these simplistic steps everyday,
you'll be reading everything and anything.
CHRISTIAN MCBRIDE

The best tool yet for helping young players to learn to read.
TERRY BURNS, Head of Bass Department Musictech College

BASSICS MAGAZINE REVIEW:
... these 48 pages provide a well-rounded sampling of the kind of lines you might be
required to play in the real world, and will go a long way toward developing and/or
revitalizing your sightreading skills. In a world full of tab, and players who may not
appreciate the benefits of proper sightreading, Essential Sightreading Studies
is, well, just that, essential.
