Review:

"This volume will awaken interest in rediscovery of the past or feed the curiosity of those already hooked."--Paul Wallich, Scientific American

"In this collection, [Fagan] features pieces notable for their vividness in expressing, above all, that moment of Eureka!... But this editor's touch is unabashedly popular; as impresario he has booked some of the more entertaining acts in the biz."--Booklist
