    This book isn't an introduction to Chopin's music. If you're not familiar with his works, I don't recommend it. This book isn't an introduction to Chopin's music. If you're not familiar with his works, I don't recommend it.

    The first part is a biography, which is interesting, but a bit short. The second part is about all the compositions of Chopin. This part can hardly be read if one is not familiar already, in great detail, with all these compositions. Although I have listened quite often to the music by Chopin, and even play some of it, I could not follow the very detailed analysis. I wonder who can, except professional pianists.

    A long a boring regurgitation of other peoples thoughts and research. In depth description of pictures of Chopin. If I didn't already know the music, I would have written the subject off. How can I get the time I spent on this back again? A long a boring regurgitation of other peoples thoughts and research. In depth description of pictures of Chopin.

    Although I enjoyed reading this biography of one of my favorite music composers, I have read better ones. It sufficed for my research.

    Quite a difficult read if you're not a piano player and Chopin's music affliction. I was just an unsuspecting fan of his music... Quite a difficult read if you're not a piano player and Chopin's music affliction. I was just an unsuspecting fan of his music...

    This book was ok but lacked in biographical details. There were no illustrations or scores and it was more of a critique of other 19c writings on Chopin and his music then a standalone study.
