"It provides an excellent introduction to some of the major ideas about music and the body. ... Kennaway accomplishes much by asking his readers to engage with this material through the prism of music and the nerves, and this collection makes a valuable contribution to the growing body of historical studies focusing on music and neuroscience. The book will be of great interest to music scholars and historians of science, and will also appeal to neuroscientists and music cognition researchers." (Carmel Raz, Social History of Medicine, Vol. 29 (3), August, 2016) "...interesting and thought-provoking" - Medical History
