    My Favorite Guide

    I loved this book and it got me started appreciating classical music. I enjoyed the historical facts about the composers and the pieces. I have even tagged all of the 'Classical Top 40' in my iTunes so that I can listen to them via a 'Smart Playlist.' Thank-you Mr. Rudel!
