Stokowski's own book

Music For All of Us Music for all of us
Simon and Schuster, New York 1943
340 p.

An easy to understand introduction to all aspects of musical theory - from harmony to electroacoustics. Unfortunately never reprinted and therefore hard to find. Try perhaps second hand book dealers like www.abebooks.com or www.amazon.com.

Hunt: Leopold Stokowski

Smith, Rollin

Stokowski and the Organ
Pendragon Press, 2004
ISBN: 1576471039

A very detailed and well-investigated book about Stokowski, the organist, enriched with many pictures and interesting documents. The extensive appendix lists among other things Stokowski's organ repertoire and organ recitals performed by Stokowski (which indicate already a certain affinity to the orchestra - a pity that these were not recorded!), as well as the complete scores of four choral works by Stokowski. An invaluable source of information, not only for organ lovers!
