-- The Independent

'He's incapable of writing a dull book, and consistently evokes a sense of real wonder.' -- Glasgow Herald

'It's easily digestible chapter-by-chapter, and demonstrates Sacks' principal strength: his understanding of the 'richness of the human context'.' -- The Music Teacher

'Through anecdote, argument and science, Musicophilia makes a passionate case for music as a way to discover ourselves' -- Daily Telegraph

'a special art that springs from deeper wells than any other' -- Sunday Times
