After reading the book I find myself listening to music in a new way, as I think about the music I'm hearing.
Summary Daniel J. Levitin's "This is Your Brain on Music: The Science of a Human Obsession" is an interesting read that exposes how the brain processes music.
It seems as though the author wrote it off the top of his head without researching his points or his examples, and a number of statements are false.
This book is a great addition to Oliver Sacks book 'Musicophilia'. It begins to explain how music works on the mind, or maybe I should say with the mind, in a number of ways.Published 3 days ago by Doug Davies

As a first year music educator, this book and the insights it has provided have been invaluable to me. Highly recommended.Published 12 days ago by Daniel Sanches
Wealth of information and an interesting reading too. Very educational in both music theory and psychology.
A little bit more personal bragging than necessary:-)
The book was delivered on time, but some of the pages were printed so lightly I couldn't read them. I requested another copy and had it within the week. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Mary C. Slater

I was somewhat disappointed in the condition of the book. It was a gift for my son-in-law, so the fact that there were markings in the book was not too big an issue.Published 2 months ago by Mary Kathryne Eck
