After having this book recommended to me by a friend and fellow music teacher, I was absolutely delighted when, as early on as the first page, I completely understood my friend's enthusiasm.

This book is charming right away, as it dives in with personal yet profound tales and mottos, and the eccentric characters throughout are relentless with their wordplay, which makes every page great fun to read. The journey throughout blurs the line between the philosophical and the musical and it is impossible to read without questioning music, life, and whether the two differ, anyway?

Split into chapters cleverly named using musical terms, starting with “The First Measure,” and ending with the “Coda,” as well as covering areas which are readily considered important in music, including 'Groove', 'Space', 'Listening'... this book makes you think and smile!

It is surreal yet confident, magical yet believable and, though it was over too quick, one of those that will never leave the brain of the consumer.

What an amazing book! I bought it for my husband, a bassist, but after seeing Victor (the author) in concert and seeing hearing him playing so incredibly easy and relaxed but yet at the same time 'killing' everyone with what he was able to do, I thought that reading this book would give me some insight on how he got to where he was musically.
And I think it definitely does. it's a beautiful music lesson that he has decided to share and it helps us all perceive and recieve music from a complete other dimension.
It's written in an easy style, but the message is deep and not to be forgotten if you are a musician yourself.
I was reading only a chapter a day to digest and store the information well, because I have never read anything anywhere like this book!

If you had ten stars, I would have given it the whole ten. This isn't just a book about music, this is about life skills. This is one of the books I got hooked to in no time, not only because it was written by a musician and I'm a music-mad person. What hooked me was how the topics that appear to be about music are very well relating to life and how to master it.

This is a book that challenges the very way we think and feel about music, and opens up an entirely different view that could radically change how we play, listen, and experience not just music but life itself!
I always knew music was more than a series of notes, but at last someone has put it into words....

I've been playing bass for over 20 years, and I've read dozens of bass and music tutor books but nothing like this one. I've read it now three times and every time I pick up on something that I missed previously.
If you are serious about wanting to become a better musician then buy this book. It will give you a totally new perspective on life and music, and how the two are linked.

Haven't finished the book. But don't need to finish to give it 5 stars.
If you want to become a professional musician you HAVE to read this book. But is important that you already have to understand a bit of music and/or music theory before reading. It takes the music as a language and feeling more than JUST music.
The writer was a bit predictable sometimes, which is fine.
How the title says is a good lesson for musicians and for their lives (in the future I'll be able to say OUR lives).
