Musicophilia: Tales of Music and the Brain

Helpful Score: 1

This is a collection of stories and data collected by Sacks. The data is presented in a scientific manner, and then the author explains what exactly the data means for those of us who aren't so familiar with the medical field. I find that this "revised and expanded" edition would probably be more interesting, as the author actually added portions of stories and letters he received from those who wanted to share their experiences with various things involving music. Such as synaesthesia, developing deafness, and "earworms".
