Short but informative look at a legend

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Infact I did listen to it in one sitting! It is short but informative- very recommended if you are short on time but want a good over view of the man behind some of the most beautiful music ever written in the world who remains as influential today as ever before. Bravo!
