This book is not only well-written and easy to read but also extremely interesting and informative. I came away feeling as if my understanding of music had just been reinvented in the context of cognitive theory.(Lawrence W. Baralou, Professor of Psychology, Emory University)
This is a marvelous book. Snyder succeeds admirably in applying concepts and facts from psychological literature to music listening. The writing is excellent throughout, lucid and insightful.(Bruno Repp, Research Scientist, Haskins Laboratories)
I find the level and breadth of Music and Memory quite appealing. The book is perfect for music students and artists interested in the temporal arts.(Stephen McAdams, Music Perception and Cognition Team, Institut de Recherche et de Coordination Acoustique/Musique (IRCAM) and Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS))

This book will be helpful to me as a media artist, and I would guess that artists, performers, dancers and filmmakers---actually anybody who has to make decisions about timing, pacing and rhythm---would find this book helpful. As a teacher, I plan to change the amount of information and the order in which I present my materials to the students so that I don't overwhelm (or underwhelm!) their attention and ability.
