"Real Men Don't Rehearse" is an amusing inside look at the usually hidden and secret world of professional orchestras. It is filled with dozens of humorous tales of musician antics and concert meltdowns. Outsiders are rarely allowed such access, but at last you can have your own personal tour of the mystical and magical realm of professional orchestras and the people who play in them. You don't need to be a musician to enjoy the stories!

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.
