This is the most enchanting, captivating writing on the power of the drum I have ever read. Heartfelt, poetic, and from the soul: read this book and be moved.
Larry Dossey, M.D., Reinventing Medicine and Healing Words
An inspirational book which implores us to look for ways to incorporate the pulse of music into our drumming and lives in a more spiritual way. My thanks to Dr. Diamond for putting this almost indescribable concept into words.
John Aldrige, Managing Editor, Not-So-Modern Drummer
"I used to practice Medicine, but now - Music!" Dr. Diamond has discovered that, of all musical instruments, the drums are the most easy to play on The Pulse and most easily raise the Life Energy. He captures his own life-long interest in drumming and here reveals their impact on Preventive Medicine. Drumming always has been deeply rooted in man's spiritual endeavors. Its simplest metaphor is the heartbeat. Dr. Diamond shows how to make drumming therapeutic. A special communication with rythms and melodies found in the soul. Imagine this amalgam of a trained clinical psychiatrist and a primitive drummer. That's a powerful unity! Dr. Diamond relates his Pulse to Tao, borrows from more poetry. "Play with joy, with a smile." Full of Life Energy. -- Jay Bail, The Book Reader
Drumming is truly basic to life energy. A great concept! -- C. Norman Shealy, M.D., Founding President, American Holistic Medical Association
The book demonstrates the genuine interest and passion Dr. Diamond has shown by his continuing research into drums and drumming as a quality of life enhancement option for everyone! -- Remo Belli, President, Remo, Inc.
