It has not disappointed me.I constantly dip into it,and never get bored,even when I read the same comments about the various artists covered.I love Sinatra,Louis,(sorry Mr.Friedman,but in my house F.S.always comes first),Helen Forrest,Bobby Darin,oh,I could go on.
Like Mr.Friedwald,I cannot stand Cleo Laine;Peggy Lee in small doses,but,hey.this book is about individual preferences,and nobody is coerced into liking any particular artist.
I purchased many CD's on the recommendation of Mr.F.,and I'm so glad I did.He opened up my horizons somewhat,and I am grateful for that.
A terrific book,very readable,and written by someone knowledgeable on the subject matter.
