Review

Format: Paperback
Doesn't pinpoint the source.
A bit disorganized with the content.
Each expert should have a brief introduction.

8 of 15 people found the following review helpful By C. Smith on July 23, 2004
Format: Paperback
After an 18 page introduction to biomusicology the reader is left to sift through the papers of around 25 experts in this field. Quality ranges widely as do the topics. There is some worthwhile information in this book but finding it may not be worth your time. Nonetheless, it is a positive step forward.
