    For those of you not familiar with Tommy's fantastic playing, he was Mandolin Mondays guest #94. I'd have to think this will be an outstanding work.

    Compare / contrast with Ohmson's handling of the subject matter?

    (other than the local copy shop like ring bound binding look)
    writing about music
    is like dancing,
    about architecture

    Let's not stop at the binding. I think Mr. Ohmson fancies himself a writer. I own his book and have spent time reading it. He's not a writer. The text is pretty brutal and there's way too much of it. Mr. Norris does have writing skills or a good editor. Modern fonts, clear graphics, lots of support audio in addition to the text, Mr. Norris' book is well done.
