Everyone has such praise for this book I felt compelled to order it. Although I never have time to read (I would rather be playing if I have free time) I'll make time for this book. Amazon delivered in less than 48 hours too. I had just enough time to read the prelude. I'm hooked............blob

Sorry, resurrecting an old(er) thread to be sure. But I bought my piano from George @ Altenburg's earlier this year and it looks like he hasn't changed in the last 15 years at all smile

I bought this book from Amazon for 1 penny (not making this up!) plus $3.99 for shipping.

Although the book was advertised in "good" condition, it was almost perfect when it arrived. Check it out from Amazon. The vendor was "Books Squared".

A few weeks ago, somebody here pointed out Amazon had it one its deal a day (or whatever it's called) for Kindle. I bought it and read it. It was a good read.

You didn't say translate into English.... help

P.S. Since I'm mentioned in the book by name hoping the German army doesn't find me. Left for Canada 46 years ago just before they planned to have me drafted into army.

Guess what my favorite role would have been?

"Spy" - what else....

Lol@Norbert. @anyone reading this thread: Buying this book is money well spent. A serious pageturner and informative as well.

Apparently the german army aren't looking very hard for you, as you've been in Germany on several occasions.

Guess they will be informed by now grin

An older thread but:

the german translation of Grand Obsession = "Der verlorene Klang" (the Lost Sound) is really well done, a pleasure to read. I never had to realize that I am reading a translation when I read it in the Last few days.
And it was amazing 😊
It reminds a little bit of the everyday experience that the missed/lost items are always in the last place to Be looked up. Where I wanted to look first when beginning 😐
I found the book while being busy with my return to piano practice and my personal quest for the perfect grand to become happy with. (guess I've found it)
My honest recommendation!

Thomas
