Has anyone read this?
There are some probing reviews, but you always worry that people on Amazon are talking out of their arse. By the by, I am a total novice; Wagner's ring has always seemed inpenetrable and has thus been at the bottom of my "to explore" list. But if this book is as tautly and informatively written as it appears, I hope to rectify the situation and might even avoid becoming the butt of my more musically-minded friends' jokes.
Any other interesting book titles people have come across?
