How Music Can Make You Better Book

How can certain songs carry us through a tough workout, comfort us after a breakup, or unite 50,000 diverse fans? In this fascinating field guide, neuroscientist and opera singer Indre Viskontas investigates what music is and how it can change us for the better-from deep in our neurons to across our entire society. Whether hip-hop fans, classically trained pianists, or vinyl collectors, readers will think about their favorite songs in a whole new way by the end of this book. This is a vibrant and smart gift for any audiophile.

Indre Viskontas, PhD, is the creative director of the Pasadena Opera, host of the podcasts Cadence and Inquiring Minds, and a professor at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music. She lives San Francisco.
