MUSIC The World in Six Songs: How the Musical Brain Created Human Nature
by Daniel Levitin

Daniel Levitin is now a Professor of Psychology and Neuroscience but has also been a session musician, sound engineer and record producer. This little introduction will go some way to explaining his fascination with music and human nature.

In this book Levitin blends art and science in describing how music has played a pivotal role in the creation of society. He addresses the role of music in the evolution of language, thought and culture. 

He covers every kind of music from Bach to Beatles, rock to reggae and Mozart to marimba (via Matinee Idle, of course). If you have any interest in music at all, this is a fascinating read.
