KIRKUS REVIEW

 An interesting, well-balanced biography of this phenomenon of the 20th-century American musical scene, emphasizing the many facets of Bernstein's achievement (pianist/conductor/composer/media personality) and his identity as a Jew, and wisely (for this audience) ignoring the details of his convoluted personal life. Lisker's b&w drawings are appropriate and well-placed, but a biography for this age group is much better served by photos. Chronology; bibliography; index not seen. (Biography. 10-14)
