An excellent and comprehensive overview of the development of Western music through the ages, starting from the Greeks to dodecaphony and further. The book is rather technical at times, so some passages are not easy to follow for someone who can't read notes or is oblivious to the musical jargon. One should get a hold of the separate, optional audio anthology as some of the musical examples are best explained by listening to them.
