"I have conducted the world's greatest orchestras for almost sixty years and can say that oboist Joseph Robinson is one of the finest musicians I ever met. His natural musicality always inspired me, whether he was interpreting a Mozart Concerto, a Strauss tone poem, or one of the Brahms symphonies."Zubin Mehta"You have led a storied life and I am glad you are telling it now in print." Bill Moyers"Your book is fantastic--direct, passionate, and a real page-turner!"Eugene IzotovPrincipal Oboe, San Francisco Symphony"Joe Robinson has penned an extraordinary memoir that will be fascinating to musicians and the rest of the public as well. It reads like a novel--gripping and colorful. Not a word is wasted; his style is clever, spare, eloquent, and often humorous . . . Robinson has made his story of an audacious, upstart oboist an adventure for all--inspiring and uplifting. A Hero's Life!"Your book would make a good movie!"Elaine Douvas, Principal Oboe, Metropolitan Opera, Head of Woodwinds at Juilliard"The writing is excellent . . . this memoir is terrific!"Ervin Duggan, former FCC Commissioner and President of PBS"Joe Robinson's memoir is a celebration of tenacity in pursuit of artistic excellence by a musician entranced with the love of language. He has the captivating ability to describe the exhilaration of 'a few good notes' to untutored laymen. His is a fable for all who dream large, then succeed by rigorous training, determined resilience, and a refusal to compromise with excellence."Hon. Wyche Fowler, former U.S. Senator from Georgia and Ambassador to Saudi Arabia
