Best Of Its Kind

by davidedwards on Jan 8, 2009

This is the best music appreciation text you will ever read. In everything he writes, Yudkin demonstrates an uncanny ability to make each sentence clear and each topic irresistibly fascinating. And there's more than just music here. The book essentially surveys the history of human civilization, which is half the point Yudkin is making: He demonstrates that music has always been intertwined with every human endeavor imaginable. That's why this book is for everyone, not just musicians.
