I read this book because it was on the reading list for a Danube cruise I'm taking later in the year. We'll be stopping in both Prague and Vienna, where Mozart spent a good chunk of his adulthood.

I found the biographical information a little hard to follow, as it's organized by topic instead of as a straight chronology. But the book shines in its discussion of Mozart's musical works. All in all, a useful introduction to the life of the great composer.
