I bought this after hearing about it on Pipeline where it sounded like a great idea. The cncept of experienced musicians telling of their learning experiences and anecdotes. Unfortunatley the execution did not reflect this concept. In reality the nemes at the head of each article could have been moved arouind without much loss of sense. I suspect the author probably put his journalistic style on top of what was recounted to him resulting in many chapters reading almost identical. The pipers were the most learned and respected in the trade but I did not feel this book gave them the porer credit or repsect they were due.

This is a collection of stories from some of the luminaries of the piping world. As such it contains a good variety of viewpoints from the traditional competition scene to the diverse world of folk playing and it's great to get the insights of those who have played at the top end of their chosen piping fields. The narrative of the book flows really well - this is where you can tell the pipers are happy relating their tales to someone who is involved in and passionate about the art. Fascinating read and I highly recommend it to anyone with an interest in piping. Hope there's a second volume!
