An autobiography of an eminent musician, not a man of great powers, but a man who has done a great deal to bring music into the lives of people who need and want it, through his free concerts and social work. As a book, it is dull reading. His is neither the personality nor the life to challenge interest, it lacks sweep and dimensions. The facts are chronologically presented, in rather pedestrian manner -- and the musical aspects of the book are non-technical. The chief interest in the book lies in its glimpses of musical celebrities and musical landmarks.
