I get it now. I think we all knew that Baroque music synced up nicely with calmer brainwaves and so forth, but I only understood how a handful of songs changed my physiology. Now my playlists will be made with more care and intention.
The book, just as a read, is fascinating. There's not a lot of new information, but it's a good, solid, fun read and will enlighten and enthuse even the worst skeptic.
By the way, I live at the end of a cul de sac in Southern California where two major highways meet, and even at midnight can hear bass coming from cars. God knows how that noise is affecting the drivers and passengers. If anybody reading this actually knows somebody who blasts out rap and hip hop, I'd honestly like to hear from them.
The book gives detailed instructions about how to accomplish what you want considering how you are feeling at the time, and backs up their suggestions with sound psychology and an understanding of how the brain functions. It seemed like a little too much for me to try to accomplish a playlist for all the categories the book discusses, so I wrote my own list based on their recommendations of how to choose a song or a playlist, and am having great success with my efforts.
The book really does present the information in a clear, concise way with great suggestions on how to accomplish your goals and I found the information concerning how our brains, minds, and feelings are influenced by where we are at anytime. I would recommend the book to anyone trying to come up with a playlist for any occasion or a series of playlists to deal with various life situations. From cooking a gourmet meal in the kitchen, to paying the bills.
What I was looking for, I did not find, and that was more musical selections correlated with behavioral or mood changes. I found the music categories limited. Of all the musical selections, I found only seven classical pieces with mention of a couple of other composers also limited, and most of those were integrated into the text and not part of a suggested list. What about New Wave music? Many people find Enya very soothing. What about spiritual music? Mozart's "Ave Verum Corpus 518". Listen to "There is Faint Music" from the album "Never a Brighter Star" to slow your heartbeat and get a dose of spirituality at the same time, a beautiful piece of less well-known music.
None of the pieces on my favorite walking music playlist are found in the book. May I recommend the Bee Gees "Staying Alive," Bob Seeger's "Old Time Rock and Roll," and The Commitments "Mustang Sally?" If you want a lift in your life, try Louis Armstrong's "What a Wonderful World." I know, the authors cannot include everything, but to completely ignore certain genres like jazz seems limiting.
I would also have liked a master list of music at the end of the book, organized by the chapters' subjects. The authors might also have given some hints about how to find pieces of music at Amazon MP3 downloads, with ideas about how to select between many versions of the same piece.
My first exposure to this subject was at a lecture twenty years ago about the relationship between music and teaching struggling students to read, so this is not a new subject to me. For someone with no knowledge of the subject matter, this is a good place to start. For people who already have playlists they like, get this book at the library.
