Joseph Epstein has always disapointed me. He tries way too hard to be cute. Here he uses the word 'swell' over and over again in a distracting way. And of course there isn't much to say about Fred Astaire except that he was incomparably great. However, Epstein knows how to appreciate Astaire and gets it across pretty well. The last chapter, a total appreciation. is excellent,leading me to think that this book should have been an article.
