A true craftsman, Berger is a favorite with readers whose interests he covers in nonfiction. [In "The World of Dance"] he discusses the numerous ramifications of the dance, its history from ancient times to the present…. Berger doesn't fail to include information about great names in the dance in an absorbing book. One finds but one quotation to question. Scholar Curt Sachs says, "… dancing … is simply life on a higher level." (Make that "a different level" or add "sometimes.") (p. 69)
