An interesting book

The book will be more enjoyable if you are familiar with the songs and the banter in "Drop of a Hat", "Drop of Another Hat", and "Bestiary of Flanders and Swann". However you probably wouldn't be considering this book and reading this review unless you were. There is much more to the book, including the fascinating story of his father's years in Russia around the time of the revolution and his own experiences as a C.O. during WWII. The later parts of the book describe his desire to use music to help improve society and the directions in which that desire took him.
