I can see your point but it's just a pun. Taking a common expression and placing it in a different context, thereby creating a double entendre, is a worthy form of humour and it has no more significance than that. The title aside, it's a comprehensive and well thought-out book and worth having on the shelf.

OCTO, Do you think they would send me a free copy if I agree to review it extensively for this forum? Maybe if I take back my comment about the title? (-:

Vaughan, I look forward to reading the book and will certainly not hold its title against it.

Elaine Gould will probably forgive you. As you suggested, the title might not even be her idea.

I know which side of my bread is buttered and will therefore refrain from further comment. (-:

The book is good. There are other guidelines for music engraving, however not so complete as this one.
As the title suggests – it is a book about the unrevealed or forgotten believes. This could help a lot to everyone who has the courage to learn more and more.
I've got this book as a present form my wife soon after it was issued on Amazon.de (the version in English).
What I am seeking right now is the E-book of the book regardless in English or German, because it is more easy to search and find instantly what you need as an information.
