This book contains transcriptions of some of Mike Portnoy's best known works from Dream Theater, Liquid Tension Experiment, and Transatlantic. Let's check it out.
Anthology - Volume One
Transcriber's Notes: The book opens with an explanation by Steve Ferraro who details exactly what it took for him to transcribe the nine songs that are included in this book.
Each of the book's nine song chapters follow the same format beginning with performance notes written by Mike himself, transcription notes by Steve Ferraro, drumkit diagram, notation key, and the drum chart itself.
The book includes drum transcriptions to the following songs:

Mike Portnoy Anthology Volume One: The Bottom Line
I highly recommend this book to all Mike Portnoy fans as it contains some of Mike's best known grooves and signature fills. And metronome times are included so you can compare your chops to Mike's. Even if you're not a fan I suggest you take a look at it anyway. It just might give you some ideas that you can incorporate into your own drumming style.
Considering all of the work that goes into a transcription book such as this, it's a good value at its suggested retail price of $24.95. But if you're looking to pick it up at a substantial discount, you can always visit:
