    I slowly plodded through this as my "bathtub read" this month. It was good, but not as well edited as it needed to be. I've loved The Music Man since I was a child, so last summer on our travels we stopped in Mason City to see Music Man Square and the childhood home of Meredith Willson. I'm glad I read this because it made me appreciate him more, but it isn't the best bio I've ever read. I slowly plodded through this as my "bathtub read" this month.
