Sep 18, 2008 Seray rated it 4 of 5 stars
Recommends it for: Anyone interested in the effects of sound and music upon our bodies and our soul
Recommended to Seray by: Dwight
The ear is not given enough credit! Eyes beware, the ear has always been in charge. Seriously though, the effects that sound (aka music) has upon our bodies and our minds is astounding. The last chapter or two gets a bit out there, as well as a bit boring, but overall, the information in this book is essential. You may never listen to music in the same way.
It's been quite awhile since I read this book, but I found it very interesting and thought provoking. At the very least, after reading this book, you might consider how you are relating to the world, through the eyes...or ears.
really more about listening than music though interesting chapters - took more concentration than I could devote at this time
