"...on its own merits, and especially when compared to any of the previous Caruso biographies that it is intended to complement, this book meets every standard and expectation from the standpoint of research....What distinguishes the new work is not only its lode of previously unpublished information, but also the several excellent supplements that complement the book's 560 pages of text....all of these appendices are important to a study of the career of Enrico Caruso, and without exception each was prepared especially for the new book....the compendium of discographical information in this new book, not to be found in any previous biographies or discographies, increases tremendously the value of the book."
- James A. Drake, THE OPERA QUARTERLY, Summer, 1991
