The Athletic Musician. Paull, Barbara. Scarecrow Press,1999. ISBN: 0810833565. Explains an innovative approach that teaches musicians how to prevent and manage injuries, presented in a unique format that combines sound medical protocol with a musician's point of view.

The Musicians Way: A Guide to Practice, Performance, and Wellness - by Gerald Klickstein (ISBN 978-0-19-534313-7). Outstanding book on issues of critical importance to any musician. See also his website above.

The Music Lesson - by Victor L. Wooten (ISBN 978-0-425-22093-1). Victor is an amazing electric bass player, and this book details how he found a teacher (well actually, the teacher found him) and learned to play music instead of bass.

The Clarinet and Clarinet Playing - by David Pino (ISBN 978-0-486-40270-3) Although this copy is dated 1998, it was originally written in 1980. An outstanding work on all aspects of clarinet playing, even including instructions on making your own reeds. I highly recommend this book for the medium to advanced clarinet player. Mr. Pino is a bit opinionated, but since I agree with most of what he says, that's ok. <g>
