A great book about the art of guitar making and the art of being successful in life. I appreciated Bob Taylor's down to earth lessons about hard work, perseverance, sacrifice, service and commitment.

Bob Taylor is a humble and dedicated luthier. His stories about Taylor Guitars is both educational and an honest look at what passion will do in creating a good company. I love his guitars and learned much about what goes into them.

This is absolutely crazy. Why would I pay almost $15.00 for a Nookbook when I can get the hardback for less? I am very disappointed in my Nook so far because of the prices of so many of the newer books. The Kindle price is almost $5.00 cheaper.
