5.0 out of 5 stars A fascinating journey through music!, 17 Sept. 2010
I am, sadly, neither a musician nor a scientist, but music has been a passion for as long as I can remember! Without understanding why, I've always been aware that certain pieces of music will provoke certain emotions; 'How Music Works' provides all the answers. This insightful book is written in a friendly, down-to-earth style, and left me feeling as though I'd just had a long conversation with a friend (albeit a rather one-sided conversation with a friend far more intelligent than me), rather than scratching my head in a rather nonplussed manner. 'How Music Works' is unlike any other book on the topic; the science and psychology of music is a topic that remains largely inaccessible within literature to anyone who doesn't already have a Phd in it. However, this fantastic book is full of interesting and witty anecdotes, helpful illustrations, and explains even the most complicated aspects of musicology in a way that is easy to understand, without seeming patronising. 'How Music Works' is a book to be enjoyed by anyone of any age with a keen interest in music!
