This book can benefit with some audio sampling

It's a great book on the foundations. Though I would really think it benefits a great deal with some audio examples of violin sounds when it goes through examples of things not to do, for instance. Trying to describe that in words and describing the sound lacks effect.

Great book overall. Listened to it three times.
