Description
Will listening to Mozart really make children smarter? Does opera cause cows to give more milk? And do sharks like Barry White? Journalist Silvia Bencivelli examines whether music was an important, pre-lingual form of communication for early mankind, or if it has always been merely a pleasure, comparable to eating a slice of pie. In this book, Bencivelli also looks at the ways contemporary scientists are studying music, both to tap its therapeutic potential and to see what it can tell us about how humankind has developed over the millennia.
