A riveting book that, though refusing to go chronologically, works through Brubeck's career (specifically focusing on the Octet and the famous Quartet). All fans of Brubeck will treasure this, though if you are not a musician, the descriptions of the execution of songs and concerts will leave you lost. Still, it's worth the read!
