I thought he offered a lot of highly useful information. However, when he denigrated the ambitions of his musical director, without offering any useful guidance on how the guy could find something at least close to what he wanted, I discovered I stopped caring about how wonderful this guy was (which he was careful to let us know, oh, fairly often). I guess support people aren't supposed to have ambitions beyond their station. I just wonder what why Maxwell would have told his wife if say, she'd wanted to become a stockbroker.
I tried to continue after that, but after he started explaining how great he was, and how he learned so much from other leaders (all of whom were male), then I felt he was no longer talking to me.
I'm sure there was lots of good information. But I was so turned off by how he treated his musical director that I really couldn't listen to him any more.
His performance was excellent. He has a great voice, and knows how to use it to deliver the material.
No. But it's nonfiction anyway.
Very highly indeed. However, one should not drive while listening to that little scene right at the end of the opera (fans self vigorously).
Any Courtney Milan book, I expect--I have come to look forward to her intensity and excellent writing, and occasional thunderbolts of humor. I also compare her work to that of Lois McMaster Bujold, who can make you laugh and break your heart in the same chapter.
The different voices were especially good, though Ash's (the Duke's) voice and Dalrymple's voice were fairly close if they were in the same conversation.
Too intense for that, and also, I have this horrible thing called a day job that would keep me from doing it, alas.
Now I will have to spend money on all the other books in the series. My poor Visa!
