The text, what there is of it: the assertions in the book are pretty free and breezy. They're also not very deep into the folklore of piping. I'd complain that he doesn't delve deeply enough into the Scottish folklore of piping, but he doesn't delve deeply into any folklore of piping. I've learned more piping folklore looking at a bottle of scotch than I did from reading this book.
I give the book a star, as the paintings and engravings he chose to include were actually rather nice. Not nice enough to justify owning the thing. Especially in the tiny format it was printed in.
If you are already interested in piping, this probably will only contain old news information, but if you are a young reader who has the bug, it might be a good buy.
