    "Fascinating From Beginning To End"
    Any additional comments?

    Well read and very interesting listen. My two favorite subjects, music and the other world meant that my attention was caught from beginning to end. Its funny how musicians tend to be more open to forces and unusual happenings than the average person on the street, maybe that is why they make good musicians.... Anyway, I hadn't heard of Byron Janis but something drew me to the audio book and I really enjoyed it. Highly recommended.
