The content, construction and flow of this book make it, to me, a 'must read' for anyone interested in belief systems, psychology, ethics, brain functioning, mysticism, religion, spirituality and human motivation.
MS does a good reading without trying to 'sell' his ideas.
It is long and I play/replay it over a matter of days.
The only trite aspect of the production is the addition of melodramatic music at the end of some chapters. It is unnecessary, cheapens the reading, and is totally out of style with the content of the book and production.
This is a cursory overview of a number of famous composers, from Chopin & Bach to Stephen Foster. Really fun, interesting and benevolently gossipy! Great for trips and great as an introduction to musical giants' personal lives, so one my choose who to investigate further.
I am a composer/biography junkie, so they are all fascinating to me!
Both readers were wonderful; clear, appropriate emphasis, animated when needed.
It was fun to learn that Brahms was a, for lack of a more accurate term, slob!
