The Vintage Guide to Classical Music - Jan Swafford More likely 4.5 stars. I love it.

Classical music has always enchanted me, but at the same time eluded me. It is, as Jacques Barzun said in his [b:From Dawn to Decadence|58233|From Dawn to Decadence 500 Years of Western Cultural Life, 1500 to the Present|Jacques Barzun|http://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/books/1348928504s/58233.jpg|56712], the most difficult art form. As a result, I succumbed, I let go. I listened but I did not try anything further. Yet, this Vintage Guide made me want to try again.

Highly recommended.
