I think Levitin tries to hard to meet the needs of the average reader and the scientist in this book and unfortunately falls slightly short. The science is detailed but interesting, but you have to really want the information to get through the book.

Science has advanced much since this book was written it would be a fantastic book to update with current research to make its case presentations more palatable to the scientific community.

But she takes each concept and develops it, while she does not talk of Eastern and esoteric energetic principles in her text, the concepts are layered in the text in a way that brings self discovery and understanding of our own self, our true story and the convergence of our minds and emotions through music which expresses the soul by grounding us to ourselves in our bodies, we connect with spirit and open our wings. This book is an amazing transformational journey!
