I found this book a little simple - not necesarily a bad thing but the end was so rushed leaving me feeling short-changed. Having spent an eternity on the Military Wives Choir TV series, the coverage of the "Workplace Choirs" TV series ended at the semi-final stage. Then there was a quick visit to the Queen's Jubilee concert and finish!
Perhaps there was an inappropriate publishing deadline (Christmas market?).
I like Gareth Malone and applaud what he has acheived but I can't recommend this book.
