This chapter presents an excerpt from Leonard Bernstein's 1978 book The Joy of Music focusing on George Gershwin's talent as a composer. Bernstein provides one of the best posthumous views of Gershwin in this book where he writes in the form of a dialogue between himself and a professional manager. This chapter also explains that as a composer Bernstein struggled with the many similarities between himself and Gershwin.
