Very interesting book. Fairly technical at times, so if you do not have any background whatsoever in neurobiology, particularly in brain regions and memory, portions of the book may be tough to understand. Most interesting to me is the fact that many other cultures view singing and dancing as the same act. This is in sharp contrast to Western views in which we only think of professional performers as being worthy of singing in public. In many more primitive cultures, you literally cannot do one without doing the other.
