I know how every instrument has thier "bible". Kinda like how brass has the Arbans book. What book does the sax have?

Unlike trumpet, saxophone players have yet to agree on a truly essential/universal approach to the horn.

Vive la difference!

I'll second that, Hakukani. I think someone would need to take elements from several books to create a method that a majority of people would be happy with. Personally, I would really like to see something like this. Arban's, Klose, Lazarus, Baermann, etc. were written a long time ago. Of course, they are still valid and great books, but they don't reflect changes in music over the past 100 years.
That said, I still work out of my Universal Method for Saxophone by Paul DeVille every day.
