Way of Taiko in Midwest Book Review

In their January review of Heidi Varian's The Way of Taiko, the Midwest Book Review's "California Bookwatch" has some exciting things to say about this excellent book:

If world drumming is of interest then Japanese taiko drums must be on the list of things to learn about; and there's no better place to learn than through the pages of THE WAY OF TAIKO, covering the rich history and playing of Japanese taiko drums. Bright color photos throughout accompany an introduction to taiko instruments and movement, a review of training and drumming, and details on connected spirituality. A gorgeous presentation discusses taiko past, present and future.
