I really liked this book that my sister sent me about tempering pianos. It's short, information specific (almost academic), and diligently prods the mysteries of music and listening. I've always had lots of questions about key theory and key tones but never received a complete answer. This was my complete answer--written well enough that even as I understood, it allowed the vastness of the incompleteness to consume me.

It also really made me really want to hear music in played in different (original) toning temperaments.
