Conclusion
From the Introduction:-
This is not a traditional biography. Rather, it is an invitation to spend time with an extraordinary, mercurial personality. Wibb is larger than life and certainly not to be constrained easily between the covers of a book. But whatever this book is, you will be able for the first time to follow Wibb in detail through his extraordinary life devoted to the flute. Wibb has played the flute, taught it, redesigned it, re-made it, and thought endlessly about it for over sixty years. There was a lot to talk about and I have sought to reproduce the immediacy and informality of our conversations as closely as possible.
