Naturally there is some overlap between the information presented here and what would be found in an orchestration textbook, but this would be a (very valuable) supplement rather than the main textbook for a student of orchestration. (Likewise, in the opposite direction, conducting students will of course benefit from an in-depth study of orchestration as a crucial supplement to what this book will teach them!)
There are other guides to the orchestra and its instruments for youngsters and laypersons, written at a more elementary level -- but for the professional or aspiring professional musician, this book is both unique and uniquely valuable.
