"I would recommend this book to every serious flute student, and it should be required reading by every teacher." --The Flutist Quarterly

"Toff's scholarship was impressive in The Development of the Modern Flute, and her latest effort reflects the same meticulous approach....a wealth of information about a fascinating instrument."Choice

"Nancy Toff's Flute Book is an excellent work of reference that should be on every flute player's shelf...I cannot recommend it too highly."--Pan

"A flute player's and teacher's bible."--Katherine Borst Jones, Ohio State University

"The veritable vade mecum for that instrument."--Ovation

"Simply the best one-volume book on the flute available....This book is a joy to read. A flute aficianado will devour it like a novel and come back to read it regularly for inspiration as well as reference."--The Flute Network

"Absolutely indispensable to everyone connected with the flute and flute playing, from the professional to every public school teacher."--The School Musician

"A landmark in the literature of the flute and a must for both professional and amateur flutist alike."--Pan
