    This fascinating and illuminating study brings together a wealth of information gained from individuals who reveal how music has had an effect on their lives. It unveils how music plays an important part in counselling and therapy and links the disciplines of the philosophy of music to neuroscience, developmental psychology and psychoanalysis. Psychotherapists, counsellors and therapists will find this book thought-provoking and invaluable reading; as well as doctors, nurses and those working with the elderly and people with developmental difficulties. All those with an interest in music and how it can affect their lives will also find this book interesting reading.
