This review is from: How Music Works (Hardcover)
A fascinating guide to music and why it matters so much to us, with a bit of autobiography to boot. It's fascinating and funny, although I suspect some of it may be a little too dense for non musicians: for example, one chapter provides a very detailed breakdown of the costs of making records and the various chunks of money different models generate. It left me with two strong urges: to listen to Talking Heads, and to grab my own guitar and revel in the sheer joy of making a racket.
