This is a good book but not the history of tap dancers throughout film history I was hoping for. It's made up of interviews most of which are fascinating.

Thank you...
This terrific resource book was written by tap dancer Rusty E. Frank and it collects for the first time the voices and memories of thirty of America's best-loved tap dance stars and one hundred ninety rare theater, film and publicity photographs. It also includes a filmography that spans the years 1900-1955 and discography (tap dancers on records) that covers the same period.
