Eric Arthur Kriss (born 1949) produced and performed in 1976 on Mike Bloomfield's "If You Love These Blues" and "Play 'Em As You Please", which was nominated for a Grammy Award. He launched the instructional book and record division of Guitar Player Magazine and co-founded Inner City Records (voted "Record Label of the Year" in the 1979 International Jazz Critics Poll.)
Eric Kriss is the founder/CEO of MediVision (1983-89), a network of eye surgery centers. He co-founded private investment firm Bain Capital in 1984, with T. Coleman Andrews III and Mitt Romney (the candidate for the Republican nomination for 2008 Presidential election). Eric served as assistant A&F secretary under Governor William Weld (1991-93) and was CEO of MediQual Systems (1993-98), a healthcare information company. He also served as Secretary of Administration and Finance in Massachusetts' Governor Mitt Romney's cabinet (2003-05).

This 112-page book is the CD edition (book with CD). It has the lyrics of several tunes and some nice pictures of the artists. I believe that the tunes that you get are the original ones, as the inside of the front cover is loaded with "Used by permission of (name) Records", unlike most other books which are arrangements of original tunes. Some tunes in this book are playable by the late beginner, but most are for the intermediate player. Some tunes are better left to the advanced player
This book covers a lot of stuff in a logical order:
1. Ragtime Blues: History, structure and a tune (Jelly Roll Blues by Jelly Roll Morton)
2. Barrelhouse and Boogie: History, structure and a few tunes (Dyin' Rider Blues by Romeo Nelson, Mercy Blues by Barrelhouse Buck, Dying Pickpocket Blues by Barrelhouse Welch, State Street Jive by Charles Cow Cow Davenport, and I Don't Know by Criplle Clarence Lofton).
3. Stomps and Struts: History, structure, and tunes (Peetie Wheatstraw Stomp by Peetie Wheatstraw, Indiana Avenue Stomp by Montana Taylor, Fat Fanny Stomp by Jim Clarke, Big Fat Mama by Walter Roland, W.R. Calaway and Clarence Williams)
4. Boogie Woogie: History, structure, types, and tunes (Honky Tonk Train by Meade Lux Lewis, Sail On Blues by Memphis Slim, I Need a Little Spirit by Dave Alexander, and Whistlin' Alex Moore's Blues by Alex Moore)
5. Roll an Tumble: History, structure and tunes (The Cows by Robert Shaw, Sugarland Blues by Black Boy Shine, Atlanta Bounce by Piano Red, and It's Your Baby by Sunnyland Slim).
6. Barrelhouse Blues: History, structure and tunes (Lonesome Day Blues by Jesse James, I Can Tell By the Way You Smell by Walter Davis, Stella Blues by Olive (Dink) Johnson, and Short Haired Blues by Kid Stormy Weather)
7. Exercises: Coordination exercises for independence and integration, fingerings, and the tremolo.

I read some of the negative reviews, where it's insinuated that this author wrote fake reviews. I fail to see the motive. I believe that the author is too sharp, too busy and financially too comfortable that he has to resort to writing some obviously look-alike reviews. To assume that he did is illogical. There is just not enough demand for any kind of boogie-woogie book, no matter the reviews. A boogie-woogie book isn't going to make anyone rich. None of my friends and neighbors study it. I have reviewed nearly a hundred boogie-woogie books. Often, I'm the only reviewer! Look again at this author's musical, political and entrepreneurial achievements. Does he really need the limited "cash flow" of this book? It makes more sense to conclude that this is some political back-stabbing attempt to discredit the author, given the author's political past.
If you look at the content of this 112-page book and listen to the included CD, I believe that you'll find a tremendous amount of material for the money. Those that don't care about the history of these styles may want to read my review on Ann Rabson's book: "Blues & Barrelhouse Piano", which I also recommend. ;-)
