"This book, which is longer than the latest Stephen King novel, might seem too large for a thumbnail review, but the subject it attempts to cover is so huge and comprehensive that a review 10 times the length would probably not so it justice." -- Early Music America Book Reviews
"This compilation, with its large number of authors, exhibits differences in style, tone, organization of material, and approach to subject, but overall it hangs together in a remarkably cohesive whole." --Choice
