Book Giveaway: How Music Works by John Powell (Ends 1/19) CLOSED

Tuesday, January 04, 2011 Posted by Dina N

Book Description
What makes a musical note different from any other sound? How can you tell if you have perfect pitch? Why do 10 violins sound only twice as loud as one? Do your Bob Dylan albums sound better on CD or vinyl? John Powell, a scientist and musician, answers these questions and many more in HOW MUSIC WORKS, an intriguing and original guide to acoustics. In a clear, accessible, and engaging voice, Powell fascinates the reader with his delightful descriptions of the science and psychology lurking beneath the surface of music.

    I read Shanghai Girls by Lisa See and was verbally upset when I got to the end of the book. I didn't want it to end! So I'm hoping a sequel is on its way~

    Right now, I'm reading "Ground Zero" by F. Paul Wilson, which is really good if you've read the rest of the Repairman Jack series, but would probably lose anyone who hasn't.
