Recommends it for: people who make oboe reeds before and after slashing their wrists with their reed knives.
The five stars are less because I appear to have been given the oboe as a sisyphean assignment (by whom I'm still trying to find out) and have referred to this book while pushing the boulder uphill, than they are because I keep it by my side when the boulder inevitably tumbles back down. It is then that this book fills me with false hope, which is better than no hope at all.
