Entertaining and wonderfully written! My husband enjoyed it very VERY much and he is a master guitar player.

Warm and Windy!
This book was not what I expected. If your looking for a book about Eric Clapton this won't be one I'd suggest. His Autobiography, Clapton, yes. This is really a book for someone who loves Acoustic guitars and the music that comes from them. I am a Boston Red Sox (not) a Yankee hater (no tolerence for hate) so it gave me some added pleasure as well. I too was entertained and enlightened, and found myself side referencing things that led to even further delight. A delight to read that's what I found.

Both enlightening and entertaining. I did not expect to enjoy this book as much as I did and was sad to finish it. Lots of of information about how quality guitars are made. Wish I could get my hands on one of these hand made beauties.
