Her move to LA in 1965, and years later to Switzerland, as you mentioned, did change her way of song arrangements and interests. It became something that I really could not connect with. For anyone into classic and baroque music would probably enjoy the text but for me, just not my cup of tea. The book became a bit tedious half way thru to the end. As you mentioned it was more about the technical part of her talent instead of Anita herself.
However, I must say, that in my opinion, the book is worth the price even if you only enjoy the first half. Her recollections of her time in Nashville are a treasure for sure....
