Review: This Is Your Brain on Music: The Science of a Human Obsession

User Review  - Goodreads

I really enjoyed this book. It got a little biographical at times, although I suppose that made it more readable. The explanations of how music fits into the brain and even the basics of music itself have really opened my eyes (and ears) to new things. Very glad I got through this one! Read full review

User Review  - Goodreads

This book was more technical than Oliver Sacks' "Musicaphilia", which was more anecdotal. The author gave some background on music theory and neuroscience. What I liked about it was that he chose examples not only from Classical music, but also pop, rock, and jazz to illustrate his points. Read full review
