If you own a saxophone then this is an essential 'must have' book. The book shows you how to maintain and (more importantly) fix your saxophone when things go wrong. The book is easy to read, well laid out, and comes with a healthy dose of common sense. Whilst it does not cover saxophone restoration it does cover all of the common saxophone ailments and their remedy. Stephen Howard has a worldwide reputation in his field and this book distills the essence of his skill(s), experience, and knowledge. Owning this book will be a bit like having vehicle breakdown insurance.... most of the time you will not need it - but when you do it's priceless. Worth every penny. Buy it.
