    "Electronic Music is a dry, academic overview of the genre of electronic music. It's extremely thorough and valuable though not the most entertaining read as you might have imagined."

    "Electronic music and modern music makes a ton of sense since I guess most of the modern music today are all electronic music or what the cool kids call Electronic Dance Music right? EDM. This is one worth reading if you really are going into the whole history of electrionic modern music, not a huge fan but definitely worth looking into I guess, I am hesitant in recommending this particular book to others though."

    "Unless I'm taking a class on music theory or something, I don't want to read a book about music. I would rather read about something interesting, and listen to music. Techno is one of my favorite genres of music though."

    "I am nowhere near qualified to find books about history, let alone of electronic music. The book suggested however, seems to be a great match! The reviews on Amazon are very positive and there are several comments commending this book on its vast contents."
