    Daniel Levitin follows up his acclaimed New York Times-bestselling first book, This Is Your Brain on Music, with The World in Six Songs, an audacious look at how the brain evolved to play and listen to music in six fundamental forms and gave rise to human culture.

    Overall

    The possibility for this to be a wonderful book is fabulous. However, the author rambles, goes off on winding tangents, and mainly name drops throughout this book. This was a book club choice for our group, and the discussion WAS involved, but all in agreement that it basically was a name dropping bore who had a good idea for a book, but the execution was very poor. Not a recommended read/listen.
