I think I've got that same Hal Leonard book, and I really like it. (It presents things very succinctly, which might be tough for someone starting completely from scratch. I played another instrument in the past, so all the musical notations were already familiar.) I'm almost 1/3 of the way through it. I've been focusing on the melody and neglecting the chords, so I'm pushing myself to remedy that.

I've got that string winder, too, but the first attempt at restringing was still only mostly successful.

I've looked ahead at the barre chords a little bit. Even with all the time in the world, I can barely get my hand to form some of those shapes. I may have to change my playing position a bit, but I don't think I've been at it long enough to have any unbreakable bad habits yet.
