The Difficult Child: Expanded and Revised Edition
A Real Dragon-Slayer
Often I find that the universe seems to hand me just the book I need when I need it most, and this would be case in point. By the time my daughter was two, I'd worked my way through stacks: the high-need stuff, the strong-willed stuff, the highly-sensitive, the challenging, the high-I.Q., the out-of-synch, the spirited--so much, yet I stopped short of reading "The Difficult Child" because I ...
Touched with Fire: Manic-Depressive Illness and the Artistic Temperament
Kay Redfield Jamison
Great book especially for people who don't have it
It's a GOOD book for understanding what bi polar is but if you are bi polar you have a pretty good idea. The suggestions for maintaining are pretty good but there is no information on pursuing your interests when your friends tell you you are manic when you are not. So that's too bad.
Father and Son: a study of two temperaments

Marvelous insight into family, fatherhood, and social change

I am a psychiatrist with specialty training in family dynamics and therapy; I have recommended this book to my patients, friends, and their families for years, ever since I read it myself. It tells of a ...
What Type Am I?
Very good entry-level book, includes quick/accurate tests
For those interested in finding out more about oneself, get this book. It's quick, simple and straight to the point. This is not an "in-depth" book or an academic book. But I still found it very useful and informative. It contains 4 sets of 10~15 questions, that took me about 30 minutes to complete. Then you write down your 4-character personality traits and analysis of pros / cons. ...

Genesis Of A Music: An Account Of A Creative Work, Its Roots, And Its Fulfillments, Second Edition
Da Capo Press, 1974
THE desk reference on Just Intonation
As a steel guitarist, I find the entire subject of Just Intonation (JI) fascinating. It's a beautiful sound, perfectly aligned with the laws of physics. Partch's book includes tables of all of the JI ratios, translated into cents. This is the ultimate reference book for anyone experimenting with tunings. Partch's music may not be your cup of tea, but the logic behind it is top notch. With ...

The Temperament God Gave Your Spouse

Mother's/Father's Day Gift No Brainer!
The greatest gift one can give their spouse is the gift of unconditional love. Making that gift IMHO becomes easier once you've come to a mature acceptance of the temperament God gave them.

All readers will see ...

Temperament: How Music Became a Battleground for the Great Minds of Western Civilization
A music student's positive review
It's been about four years since I read this book, but I remember that it was an excellent read. I was extremely interested in the material, being ignorant of almost all of it before beginning the book, and I thought it was well-written to boot. Isacoff presented the information well-- providing diagrams and pictures where necessary for understanding certain things, such as the mathematical basis ...
HOW EQUAL TEMPERAMENT RUINED HARMONY
A history of tuning
This book is not for casual music aficionados. Dedicated amateurs, professional musicians and acoustics scientists would get a lot out of it. Duffin lays out a history of the tuning issues first observed in ancient times. It's clearly written and explained, if the reader has a decent music background. This is the first sensible history I have read that traces the thinking and problem solving ...
