Larry Fine is a piano tuner and has a wealth of information to share on the subject of pianos. But he does not just share his own opinions with the reader. He has gathered the opinions of many expert tuners to create a very useful and readable book. A great asset for anyone considering buying a piano, restoring a piano, or just knowing what's out there.

Piano shopping, do it youself, isn't easy as you had ever thought, just went to piano shop and bought, and will be harder when you come across with wrong information, usually you will get when you met with dealer, man or woman who makes you more confuse and tries to sell you a piano. Piano Book will give you information and knowledge that necessaries to buy a piano which you won't get from anywhere and no one will give you except Piano Book. Don't just a think to buy a piano unless read it first this is only that I would like to say.
