This Is Your Brain On Music

Daniel J. Levitin’s non-fiction work entitled This is Your Brain on Music:  The Science of Human Obsession is an eye-opening look at the connection between music and our mind.  Levitin tells us why we are emotional attached to the music from our youth, why jingles get stuck in our head, and how composers produce pleasurable music by exploiting the way our brain views the world, among many other intriguing theories.  The book is easy to read even though the ideas are complex and often mix science and psychology together.  After reading this book you are sure to look at music and the brain in a whole new way.  This is a perfect read for anyone interested in the working of the mind.
