    Music can move us to the heights or depths of emotion. It can persuade us to buy something, or remind us of our first date. It can lift us out of depression when nothing else can. It can get us dancing to its beat. But the power of music goes much, much further. Indeed, music occupies more areas of our brain than language does - humans are a musical species.

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of Musicophilia to be better than the print version?

    Cannot respond. Did not read the print.


    What did you like best about this story?

    This story agreed with many things I have always believed about music. E.g., Rhythm is probably one of the most primitive emotions we have and respond to. Each key has a different "mood" to it, so do certain intervals.


    What does John Lee bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He sounds like what I imagine Oliver Saks voice would sound.+


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    It would make a potentially excellent documentary.
