Musicophilia: Tales of Music and the Brain

You may have heard about the fantastic new book from Dr. Oliver Sacks, "Musicophilia: Tales of Music and the Brain." Dr. Sacks has been on national TV shows for the past several weeks and this book promises to be another best-seller for him. I haven't read it yet but I'm getting ready to order it from Amazon. If you want to order it from Amazon, please go to and then put in the name of Dr. Sacks book.

Dr. Sacks was one of my first heroes when I stepped into the field of music and medicine. He had just testified in Congress about the power of music in many musical specialties. If you do to to my site listed above ( you'll also see some fascinating videos of him talking about music with several conditions such as amnesia, Parkinson's and "brainworms." Enjoy!
