Yet another review of Musicophilia

January 25, 2008

Jessica Phillips-Silver reviews Oliver Sacks’ Musicophilia for Science (and has quite a few nice things to say about the book):

Musicophilia is not only another example of best-selling author Oliver Sacks’s repertoire of fascinating neurological anecdotes and skillful storytelling but also a poignant collection of evidence that music has a powerful influence on the human brain.

Last time, when I borrowed the book from the library, I could not finish reading it. I have brought the book home again today, and, probably this time, I will finish it (and write a note here about it).
