You'll never hear music in the same way again * Classic FM magazine * Music seems to have an almost willful, evasive quality, defying simple explanation, so that the more we find out, the more there is to know... Daniel Levitin's book is an eloquent and poetic exploration of this paradox -- Sting Endlessly stimulating -- Oliver Sacks Consistently interesting... Music, Levitin argues, is not a decadent modern diversion but something of fundamental importance to the history of human development * Literary Review * Fluent and readable... [Levitin] rightly insists that we are all better equipped to perform and appreciate music than we think... We are, he says, hard-wired for music. * Observer *
