The Seventh Dragon: The Riddle of Equal Temperament

The author, Anita T. Sullivan (, 08/07/97 writes: Piano tuning combines art and science. I'm a piano tuner and I wrote this book to try to figure out the bizarre process of "setting a temperament", which is where you begin when you tune a piano. It turns out that what the piano tuner does on the piano is a kind of miniature version of the whole history and philosophy of "Western" music.
