"Overall, From Music to Mathematics is a pleasing and well-written book that is accessible for everyone who wants to explore the connections between music and mathematics. Gareth Roberts does a great job of making numerous suggestions on how music can be used to illuminate mathematical concepts... From Music to Mathematics is very enjoyable to read – not only for students, but for anyone who loves music and mathematics."(Musicae Scientiae)
"Overall, I strongly recommend this as an excellent basis for teaching."(MathSciNet)
"The fact that most of the aspects of music discussed seem to be relatively peripheral to the immediate experience of music emphasises that nobody has yet provided a convincing justification for the universal belief that "mathematics and music go together". Recommended to anyone with an interest in the precise details of both the music and the mathematics."(The Mathematical Gazette)
