A biography to be reckoned with by a historian who rivals the best. I have enjoyed Johnson's work before, so this book will be on my reading list!
Quick review by Doug Wilson, one of my favorite cultural commentators:
"This was a quick and enjoyable read. Mozart was a phenomenal genius, and
this short book -- short just like Mozart's life -- gives a marvelous
sense of that genius. For those who don't know much about Mozart's life,
and don't know whether or not he was a founding member of the Dave
Clark Five, this is the book for you. If you know enough about Mozart to
think that joke wasn't funny, this is also a book for you."
