Some of the chapters could have been edited for length but overall I found myself engrossed in the many humorous and touching anecdotes. Sections of the book may be hard to comprehend without knowledge of musical vocabulary, but on the whole it should be accessible to anyone. While the "Mastery of Music" is a stand-alone piece Mr. Green does make references at points to his first book and it could be a good investment to go and pick up "The Inner Game" if you have the funds.

I think this is a great book for musicians to read, especially if you need a reminder or a refocus in your career as musician. Certain chapters were very interesting, ie., "discipline" and "communication" while other chapter were more difficult to get through. ie. "tolerance"
I recommend this book for musicians who desire to see and understand a "bigger" picture of what it means to be a practicing hard working musician.
