A review of a book on Bach and his awesomeness - on my Christmas wishlist now.

Yup, WSJ doesn't want me to read. Could you please post an Amazon URL or other reference that contains the book's title and author? I'm a huge Bach fan.

I have the Kindle version, and have read about a third of it. My take on it is that the author wants us to see Bach not as a perfect saint on a pedestal, but as a real man. Also the emphasis is on choral music.
