We were required to have a code to access a website for classwork with this book and that was not packaged with the book. There is a lot of good information in this text but there are some pricey peripherals to get the full benefit of the topic.

I bought the hardcover version of this book for my college course music class. You should make sure which one your class uses be it the 'paperback' or 'hardcover' because the hardcover pages are numbered differently than the paperback. Some of the chapters are labeled differently as well (this caused me some confusion when trying to follow along in my syllabus and class).

If you are ordering this for a college course to try and save the cost of buying the book at your school then avoid this. Youd be better off buying the e-book for 5 dollars more at chegg.com. Its supposed to come with a CD with a selection of musical pieces referenced throughout the book. Well, this particular copy doesnt include the CD. So basically your are paying for half a text book which is marked "new" in the description, and you cant properly complete the class if your professor requires you listen to the selected music like mine does. On top of that, my book was pretty badly damaged when it arrived. Ill be returning this or filing a claim if the return is not accepted. Bought from "CKY Books."

I like how each section is broken down and I love the background information on the musicians! I learned more than I thought I would!

This is great if you need it as a text book, it actually covers more than just music which is nice and gives you some history as a background story.

I took a Music Appreciation Class at my community college, and I used this as an e-book. It was an easy read, and good flow.

This is a good book; it has good content and is in good condition. The information has helped my son in his class for the translation of the Renaissance period/Baroque music.
