    Great overview of the field in an accessible format for undergraduates. Sufficient sources for scholars looking for sources on a particular subset of information. Wonderful breadth of content in a clear manner!

    Tämä oli yksi kurssikirjoista, joita luin osana musiikkipsykologian kurssia. Kirja tosin ansaitsee paikan myös kotikirjahyllyssä. Todella mielenkiintoisia artikkeleita ja anekdootteja musiikin ja psykologian rajapinnalta.
