Online Supplements for Alex Ross's Books
I've been slowly working my way through Listen to This, Alex Ross's excellent second book. His first book, The Rest Is Noise, was also mind-blowingly good. I wanted to point out that the online audio guides for these books are also highly worthwhile, with many music excerpts to go along with each chapter of each book. (The only problem is you may spend a lot more time on those pages than you intended.) I've already bought a couple recordings based on the excerpts he linked, and I still have many chapters to go.
