About the book:

Celebrating the musical gifts of the man from Missouri, this book is a treasury filled with interesting facts and one of the finest collections of photos of President Truman at the piano or with famous personages.

Many of us think we know Harry S Truman, that almost legendary president who guided the nation through the final days of World War II. There was another side to Truman, in that he loved music. He particularly loved the great classical composers, but melodic popular songs, folk ditties, and tuneful musical shows all found a place in his heart.

Harry Truman was a modestly accomplished pianist, an avid concert-goer, and a champion of the simple pleasures to be had from almost any musical experience.

This book can but skim the surface of the depth of Truman's musical life, but it gives a pleasurable view of this bluntly honest, forthright man who reluctantly became President of the United States and who never, throughout his whole life, allowed a musical moment to escape him.
