It's wonderful and helpful to me. Because, nowadays, I'm listening to his symphonies conducted by Georg Tintner. Especially, chapter 4 of Part I is very impressive showing the annexation with NAZI. But, I feel that this book is more general than I thought before I purchase it. Then, I can not rate this book as 'Five Stars'. Anyway, this book should be helpful to who wants to know about the composer or the Man (Anton Bruckner).
