Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Gr. 7-12. Numerous black-and-white photos, including one of Bernstein as a teenage camp counselor in 1937 conducting preteen members of a band, enhance this biography about a remarkable man who devoted himself to music. Six years after that photo was taken, Bernstein took the musical world by storm when he filled in for the ailing conductor of the New York Philharmonic. Lazo tells a vigorous story about the many obstacles that Bernstein had to overcome on his path to success, as well as the amazing accidents that led him to a career in music, rather than to a sales position in his father's beauty-supply firm. Bernstein's creative range, which encompassed composing, conducting, writing, and educating through TV, comes clear in this intriguing life story, which is just right for young people with an interest in classical music and conducting or writing it.

This book is the May selection for my book club. I can remember as a teen when my sister was smitten by "A Wonderful Town". This book was so informative. I also appreciated all the pictures. The author is coming to our meeting and will sign our copies.
