I recently bought a ukulele, so it was only natural I grab from the library every bit of uke knowledge I could find. Amid all the training manuals was this gem. A) The book is beautifully colored, really bring the variety of ukuleles within to life. B) The history is not dry, but written in an accessible manner that only makes one want to read more. C) There's so much information about artists and albums that I want to check out for myself as a beginner wanting to learn the intricacies and nuances of the instrument. (Unfortunately my library system doesn't have much in the way of uke music. Sigh.) Actually, those who have been studying the ukulele for years will likely find this book fascinating, for it really is a wonderful glimpse into the history of the instrument, from its invention to the major artists and makers.
