The Art & Method of the Violin Maker is . . . a very personal account, written with great erudition and insight . . . All of these titles are recommended to anyone with even a passing interest in violin literature." -- From a review by John Dilworth in the April 1994 Strad Magazine

His comments are thoughtful and if there are two sides to an issue he shows both.
I wish that this book had more information about specific violas (I realize that there is no "Standard" size viola, thus my suggestion of specific instruments)
Much of the information I don't find particularly helpful - but the info I need does the trick every time.
