Somebody gave me this a few years back, and I have to say that for someone who has spent time working on pianos, loves the smell of old wood and the beauty of a fine crafted piano (like myself) this book is a truly delicious read.

The kind of book that you can curl up into and savour the author's sentiments like a fine wine.

This has nothing to do with Jazz, and not much to do with actual music at all. It is a celebration of the piano itself as objet d'art.

Having lived in Paris, France for several years made this book all the more vivid for me.

Yes, I second that. It was a very inspirational book for me and actually helped finally to push me into buying that new piano I've been talking about.

Thanks for the recommendation - It was one of those books you don't want to finish.
