"The most comprehensive and authoritative treatment of its topic ever attempted....His intimate familiarity with Bach's keyboard music is evident throughout....This is an important study that deserves an international audience."--Russell Stinson, SUNY at Stony Brook
"For all musicians, not just keyboardists."--Choice
"This exceedingly comprehensive work is particularly significant not only as a revelation of the musical perceptions of one of the foremost keyboard artists of our time, but also for the sound musicological evidence it presents for the illumination of a wide range of performance problems inherent in Bach's keyboard works. The author's demonstrated ability to convey the composer's intentions to present-day performers in the interests of musical perfection undoubtedly will enrich the experience and understanding of Bach's music for audiences for many years to come."--The Diapason

His comments on rhythm, articulation, and the like are also very useful.
As an author, though, he is a cantankerous and uneven companion. Sometimes he's brilliant or witty or insightful. Sometimes though he can be very repetitive. In particular, the over-sized Pralltriller polemic could have used more editing.
Nonetheless, I'm very glad I read it, and, if you play Bach at the keyboard, there's much to learn.
