"In this little gem of a book, Barry's pastorly reassurances loosen ties, bring out inner chickens and enable nascent musicians to let rip like Dylan and the Boss, eventually moving toward pomposity-slaying licks and writing an original blues song (because you know you have one in you)." (Bookpage 2009-08-17)
From the Back Cover
the harmonica can make you more playful (which is the WHOLE POINT of this book)
"We should all stop and smell the roses, but as Sam Barry notes in this cheery and inspiring little book, stopping to make a little music is just as rewarding and much more fun-and you can do it indoors! A wonderful read." -Mitch Albom, author of For One More Day
"This book makes starting out on the harmonica fun-and makes life a little more fun, too. Harmonically yours," -Lee Oskar, world-renowned harmonicist

If you've made it as far as the Amazon page and reading this review ... I say, go ahead, buy the book.
If you play the harmonica, it will help. If you play some other instrument, it will also offer something(s) you can use. Even if you play not at all, the book might inspire you (or the birthday boy/girl in your life) to pick up an instrument, or offer a slightly different, more joyful, approach to your day. And it's just plain fun to read.
Sam's philosophy is that learning to play can and should be be enjoyable in addition to making one a more educated, well-rounded person.
