Publisher's Summary

Why does music affect you so profoundly? It impacts the way you think, talk, feel, behave and even spend money. With his conversational style, humour and endless knowledge, scientist and musician John Powell showcases fascinating studies - for example, that shoppers spend more money in stores that play classical music, and, even more astounding, they are more likely to buy German wine in stores playing German music.
With chapters on music and emotions, music as medicine, music and intelligence and much more, Why We Love Music will entertain through to the very last minute. A delightful journey through the psychology and science of music, Why We Love Music is the perfect audiobook for anyone who loves a tune.
PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

Very interesting listen

Where does Why We Love Music rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This is a great listen for anyone with an interest in music and psychology, although a few parts did go over my head a bit ( there are a couple of bits that go quite in depth in to acoustics and the science behind music),

Any additional comments?

This could be improved by the addition of musical excerpts when certain elements of music are being described as it can be a bit hard to follow without the visual aid of music scores which are included in the book.
