3.0 out of 5 stars Proof reading needed!! 15 Sep 2008
This is a good little book - however, was this book proof read before going to print? If it was it was not done very well! A small gripe I know, but one glaringly obvious mistake is that the book states that Cole Porter died before he was born! (Among other typing errors).

2.0 out of 5 stars Poorly set out & needs proof reading 30 Oct 2008
Although this book does contain a few gems, it is badly laid out and feels like the author wrote down whatever came in to his head as he sat at his PC. There are also one or two inaccuracies, and some glaring omissions.

A bit sketchy but ok as part of a collection.Luckily I have a library of books on the subject and this just fits in nicely for a quick reference book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pitch Perfect! 5 Dec 2007
This is another of the fabulous potted guides from the Facts, Figures and Fun series. Enjoy all the wonderful history and anecdotes of this popular entertainment medium. A worthy addition to the growing FF&F collection!
