Why do we love music? How do certain songs comfort us after a break-up, boost our energy during a workout, or unite 50,000 diverse fans? And why are some pieces considered "great music" while others are labeled guilty pleasures? In this slim and accessible field guide, neuroscientist and opera singer Indre Viskontas investigates how our brains extract meaning from sound and the many ways in which music changes us for the better-from deep in our neurons to across our entire society. This compelling follow-up to the popular How Art Can Make You Happy offers fascinating insights and new perspectives to music lovers of all stripes.
