Reviews

"A magnificent addition to the growing body of literature devoted to the newly emerging field of sound therapy by an author who has been instrumental in its development and recognition. Insightful, lucid, and engaging, The Power of Sound is the first important book on sound therapy for the twenty-first century. It should be read by anyone interested in the true nature of music's potential as a healing modality. Bravo, Mr. Leeds!" * Randall McClellan, Ph.D., author of The Healing Forces of Music *

"Joshua Leeds points to the future for the entire music community--musicians, producers, engineers, composers, and businesspeople. I applaud his generosity in sharing the psychoacoustic techniques he has developed and utilized to great effect. In combining music and science, Leeds has achieved a dramatic advance in the use of music and sound for empowerment and change." * Joe Harnell, Grammy Award-winning composer, pianist, and author of Counterpoint: The Journey o *
"Used for basic understanding, either for personal or professional use, The Power of Sound is a powerful tool at its best. Leeds, through his thorough research, is giving us a glimpse into another world of music. (By-the-way, the 75-minute CD of psychoacoustically designed classical music is awesome!)" * Irene Watson, Reader Views, October 2010 *
"In this deep guidebook to everything sonic, Mr. Leeds caters to the layperson and the professional alike. The content is exceptionally well researched and organized.
