Sounds like a well-thought-out, well-organized, useful book. Reminds me a little of this presentation by Bond's colleague David Krauss (which I've only read about, not seen. Does anyone have a working link?)

I caught the last 30 minutes of the Met's Die Frau ohne Schatten on the radio this weekend, from 2013. Last 30 minutes of 3+ hours, and the end of a 35-page book. Wow, that orchestra knows its business. I believe Mr. Bond was part of the section at that time.

It is a terrific book.

Thank you for the info - it gives a much better view of the overall content of the book.

Yup. They certainly could have.

Usually the digital platform a publisher chooses has to do with which company gives them what they want or gives them the best deal (or the one that they own). While they care about what consumers use, they tend to expect that consumers will bend to their wishes rather than the other way around. It's the corporate mindset. I suspect if you wait for them to switch platforms, you'll be waiting a long time.

I'll bet iBooks and google books are more permissive in their controls than Carl Fisher likes. I seem to be able to print from iBooks, but I'm not sure if I could do that with any content. Also, they're probably getting a better deal from forScore and Newzik, both of which seem to be music specific apps.

Last I checked, print versions don't need OSX updates are have pretty broad compatibility.

I got my copy today. I’m about halfway through reading part one. There are lots of good insights about efficiency and tone production. Part two looks to be exercises, practice models, and explanations. It looks to be a good book worth the price.

I started the process of paying and unfortunately was stopped dead in tracks when delivery to UK = 23 dollars. There will also be import duty and probaby VAT.
Kindle version would be wonderful.

Carl Fischer probably has a UK outlet or distributor.

Just got my (hard) copy yesterday and started reading! Enjoying the fresh perspective! Thanks Pete!

In regards to digital copies we have to remember that the music method industry isn't the high volume world of best selling novels. Amazon, Apple and other digital platforms would likely eat away all the profit from the publisher/author.
