Publisher's Summary

Printed books are all well and good, but, let's face it, it's a whole lot easier to let somebody else do the reading. P.D.Q. Bach was probably the most passive composer who ever allegedly lived, so the less effort you put into learning about him, the more you carry on his ideals.

enjoyable and informative

The narrator had a very different style and made the story most enjoyable. He made me laugh several times. I didn't know anything about PDQ before listening to this and found this book just about right in length and content. It's enjoyable and informative. I recommend it.

Dumb, as usual

Peter Schikele has a consistent sense of humor-broad, slapstick, wah-wah-wah. Should've known better.
