    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I would recommend this book to some of my friends, the most obvious option should be to those that knows nothing about music history and, of course, wants to listen from a different and more informed point of view. By the other hand, i would recommend it to those who are musicologists because it is overcrowded with those points that we learn to problematize and question ourselves. I would not recommend it to someone who is in the middle of educating himself in the study of music because it can really create some misleading conceptions about music.


    What was most disappointing about The Great Courses’s story?

    It seems to be based on some old books dating back to the 1960's or so, the most of them being now out-of-date.


    Have you listened to any of Professor Robert Greenberg’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This was the first time i have ever hear about the existence of Pr. Robert Greenberg.


    Was How to Listen to and Understand Great Music, 3rd Edition worth the listening time?

    For me it was 'worthy of my precious time'; it made me think about the problematic issues about historicity in music that i usually never found in modern day texts.

    NLP is a new and powerful system that allows you to think what you have to think and feel what you have to feel. This system is so dominant that it can influence your words, your thoughts, and your actions. And by now, you should have realized that what you are is actually determined by what you say, what you think, and what you can do. By familiarizing yourself with NLP, success comes easy! Don't think for a second that your life already is a big failure and there s nothing you can do about it. With NLP working for you, there s no such thing as too late.

    Story

    This is actually a good starting point for anyone who don't know anything about NLP but has heard some superficial remark about it and wants to know a little more. It is an outline without any deep development; the title is quite descriptive about the contents. I was satisfied about this audiobook, as I wasn't expecting anything else. The performance is clear although monotonous and detached; it doesn't invited me to pay attention nor focused me on important parts, this job is left to the listener alone.
