Why You Love Music: From Mozart to Metallica—The Emotional Power of Beautiful Sounds
Why You Love Music is the perfect book for anyone who loves a tune. Scientist and musician John Powell dives deep into decades of psychological and sociological studies in order to answer the question “Why does music affect us so profoundly?” With his relaxed, conversational style, Powell explores all aspects of music psychology, from how music helps babies bond with their mothers to the ways in which music can change the taste of wine or persuade you to spend more in restaurants. Why You Love Music will open your eyes (and ears) to the astounding variety of ways that music impacts the human experience.
