Paperback / softback

Description

Finalist for the Los Angeles Times Book AwardThe Independent best books of the yearThe Guardian best books of the year This is the first book to offer a comprehensive explanation of how humans experience music and to unravel the mystery of our perennial love affair with it.

Using musical examples from Bach to the Beatles, Levitin reveals the role of music in human evolution, shows how our musical preferences begin to form even before we are born and explains why music can offer such an emotional experience. Music is an obsession at the heart of human nature, even more fundamental to our species than language.

In This Is Your Brain On Music Levitin offers nothing less than a new way to understand it, and its role in human life.
