Discover the rhythms inside yourself, the universe, and each other. I loved this book. I expect any musicians and music lovers will find resonance in his chapters on that subject. Leonard combines science, thought, and consciousness to create a wonderful little book.

I'm fascinated with metaphysics, and found the content to be meshing with other things in my awareness.
