HASH(0x9583eb1c) out of 5 stars New title? 17 July 2014
By Samantha Guzman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Doesn't pinpoint the source.
A bit disorganized with the content.
Each expert should have a brief introduction.

HASH(0x9583ed5c) out of 5 stars Some good info, but hard to find it 23 July 2004
By C. Smith - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
After an 18 page introduction to biomusicology the reader is left to sift through the papers of around 25 experts in this field. Quality ranges widely as do the topics. There is some worthwhile information in this book but finding it may not be worth your time. Nonetheless, it is a positive step forward.
