So for Glock, in this book, it really is all about his life specifically in music.

The cover may have some limited signs of wear but the pages are clean, intact and the spine remains undamaged. So for Glock, in this book, it really is all about his life specifically in music. In fact, at one point in the chapter about Boulez, Glock writes something about Boulez's conducting style that could well apply to Glock's writing style here. Glock quotes Boulez, who's been accused more than once of being a "cold" conductor, as saying that Boulez does indeed get excited when conducting, but that he is not obliged to show it.

This book is perhaps very limited to a niche audience, to those interested in the history of the presentation of classical music in Britain via the radio (i.e. the BBC) and The Proms, particularly his own period as Controller of the Proms (1960-1973). Glock remains a notorious name to some with the caricature of someone who rammed ultra-modern, atonal music down unwilling audiences' throats during his tenure at the BBC, on both the Third Programme and The Proms. However, what the detractors forget is how conservative and hidebound programming prior to Glock was, so maybe a swing to the other extreme was needed. As if in deliberate rebuttal to that caricature of him, Glock took pains in his book to discuss his love of such classical-era composers as Haydn, Mozart and Schubert, and how experiencing such composers performed by artists like Arthur Schnabel informed his musical upbringing as a younger man. But he certainly does not avoid discussion of contemporary music, and even devotes a chapter to his collaboration with and admiration of Pierre Boulez.

Glock very much minimizes discussion of his private life and his upbringing, except at the beginning with warm words about his father, for example. He summarizes his first marriage very, very briefly, but elaborates slightly more on his very happy second marriage, and has very short discussion about his one child, his daughter, who pre-deceased him aged only 34. So for Glock, in this book, it really is all about his life specifically in music.
