Reviews

"Music is perhaps the strangest and most powerful of all human creations. It communicates directly what cannot be expressed in words--our complex emotions and the richness of our experience. Finally, Indre Viskontas, combining her deep knowledge of neuroscience and music, has lifted the veil on the mysterious effects of music to move us, showing us not only how the human brain creates the magical patterns of music but also why music has the power to affect us like no other form of communication. An extremely important and inspiring book." --Robert Greene, best-selling author of The 48 Laws of Power
"This brilliant little book is clear, lucid, and easy to read. It is packed with fascinating information that I didn't know, and I suspect most people don't know either. I shall give it to lots of friends." --Jonathan Lynn, director of My Cousin Vinny, co-writer of Yes, Minister and Yes, Prime Minister, comedy legend
