Learn to play like the pros in under one hour!! seriously??
That is the claim and it is quite easily fulfilled.
You will learn how to use a plectrum - pros use plectrums.
You will learn how to finger chords - pros play chords
You will learn a solo or two - pros play solos
"Like" as in "a similar fashion to" - but, then, every guitarist plays "like" a pro, on that basis.
It will NOT teach you how to play as well as a pro, nor will it make you good enough to become a pro.
It is a simple misuse of the English language to make you think that you're going to get something that you're not.

How to Play the Piano
1. Select the right key.
2. Put it in the piano and open it. (Not essential, if you can't play.)
3. Once the piano is fully open, put your fingers on top of the notes.
4. Move your fingers about, making sure they hit the right notes in the correct order.*
5. Watch your friends be amazed.
*Like a pianist.
For other instruments, the same thing, but without the piano.

Anytime I look in a Guitar magazine and see a two page ad with the guy that looks like he's stuck in the 80's talking about how easy guitar playing is, I laugh hysterically, so it's quite possible.
I personally would never buy into any of it, even the perfect pitch stuff, i've always found that after a while of practicing your ear training improves.
