This book is expensive for us college kids on a budget so don't go the cheap route and rent or buy the Kindle version because there's a catch!
Of course, this is a perfect volume for students in courses on music history and music appreciation, but it is also a very fine book for the general reader who is interested in learning more about the history of Western Art Music ("Classical Music").
What I like about volumes of source readings is the way the writings give a better context and flavor of their time than any later writing. Yes, the editors have to provide some context for us, and the editors do make choices about what to provide to us and they are almost always in translation, but they make a valuable contribution to one's education about the matters at hand.
This is a fine collection that is edited in a skillful way for readability, breadth, and vitality. Superb job!
