"...Most illuminating...It is most helpful for an aspiring young artist to know in advance what they may be letting themselves in for, instead of coping (or trying to!) with the facts and problems as they occur(red) as in my case!"
--Joan Sutherland

"...Few offer as much practical advice per page for the entry level artist..."
--High Fidelity
