While I did not read this cover to cover, it is clear that you could return to this book over and over. This is both a reference book and social commentary, reflecting both the past and future of all forms of music, but especially classical music. Suggested recordings included. Ross talks about the social changes technology has imposed, and the cultural changes (fewer kids taking music lessons) that threaten the future of live music. Useful and interesting.
