I would recommend this book to some of my friends, the most obvious option should be to those that knows nothing about music history and, of course, wants to listen from a different and more informed point of view. By the other hand, i would recommend it to those who are musicologists because it is overcrowded with those points that we learn to problematize and question ourselves. I would not recommend it to someone who is in the middle of educating himself in the study of music because it can really create some misleading conceptions about music.
It seems to be based on some old books dating back to the 1960's or so, the most of them being now out-of-date.
This was the first time i have ever hear about the existence of Pr. Robert Greenberg.
For me it was 'worthy of my precious time'; it made me think about the problematic issues about historicity in music that i usually never found in modern day texts.
