This book is a description of how one drummer, Bill Bruford of Yes, King Crimson, Genesis and U.K. fame, survived the lunacy that accompanies a professional musician's existence and still retained the desire to sit at the drumset and play. It is a compendium of 18 of Bruford's recorded works in notated form, together with scene-setting and some explanation of how and why he arrived at the end product. For the compulsive practisers amongst his readership he has included a few exercises that may or may not be related to the music which precedes them in the chapter. If the narrative casts a somewhat jaundiced eye on the reasons drummers play the things they play the author makes no apologies for that.
