Supplemental readings expand on the essays and provide a wealth of practical information and tips.

Editorial Reviews

"A work of craft itself...will remain in the libraries of piano technicians for many years to come. The layout, organization, and illustrations are done with just as much thought as the written content--clear, descriptive, and instructive...a treasure trove for any piano technician."--Piano Technicians Journal
