"This holistic exposition from the point of view of a medical/psychiatric professional is a real contribution to Beethoven studies. Those interested in Beethoven's life will derive value from Mai's review of medical knowledge in the composer's lifetime and of particular (now obsolete) treatments." Clara Marvin, Queen's University, Ontario "Musicians and physicians will find the book intriguing and provocative." A. L. Padjen, director, I Medici de McGill Orchestra, McGill University "Mai's interpretation reveals a deep reverence for the composer, one which will brook no opposition to Beethoven's claim to eminence. Mai's careful research is a worthy addition to the genre of medical biography." Caroline Essex, University College London
