If this book had been entitled 'an Introduction to popular classical music' referring to the basics played on Classic FM, then I would not have bought the book and not have felt disappointed.
I expected a tome of a book with details of 'everything', but found to my disappointment that even the basics contained therein were sketchy to say the least. Like a previous disappointed reviewer, I could list all the errors and omissions, but he has done a good job of his list and I can't be bothered to waste any more time on this book. I wish someone had written an honest review before I bought the book, which is why I write this. This is not even the book I would buy to teach my children about this genre of music.
Extremely arrogant of the authors to claim this is 'Everything you wanted to know' - change the title and be honest.
