Charming, but obviously self-published (read: poorly edited, Times New Roman, disjointed). Most of this book's contents has already been covered - and in a much better manner - by Harry Ellis Dickson in 'Gentlemen, More Dolce, Please!'
I bought this as a gift but read it myself first. It's both hilarious and accurate. Highly recommended.
This is a very entertaining book, for both musicians and non-musicians alike. Great stories from someone who lived it. Laugh-out-loud funny too.
