It's a long time since I read this, so any attempt to review in depth would be doomed to failure.

I seem to remember some of the arguments not being entirely convincing, but that didn't detract too much. The author's main point is approached from a variety of angles, so that some of them were weaker than others is maybe to be expected. In general, it's an interesting look at the role (perhaps) played by music in the development of verbal communication.
