5.0 out of 5 stars Exposing Your Academic Apparatus, February 11, 2012
This review is from: Reading Jazz: A Gathering of Autobiography, Reportage, and Criticism from 1919 to Now (Paperback)
I just finished reading this cover-to-cover, all 1,060 pages of it, skipping about four or five chapters that I had already read elsewhere. My version was the hardback and just holding it in my hands to read could be a chore. I agree with all of the other readers' praise. My sole complaint may seem minor but renders the book quite a bit less useful for anyone hoping to retain it as a reference work: There is no index! The table of contents might have been sufficient except that many of the chapter titles beyond the first section of biographical essays give little indication of what the chapters are about. Nonetheless, much of this material currently is not available anywhere else and I learned a great deal from reading it.
