This author does have a very good working knowledge of his subject. I enjoyed the book and did understand parts of it, but I think it could have used a little more review of ideas and terms covered in earlier chapters. It's as if the author expects you to be able to recall all of the finer points associated with a particular idea simply by using the word in a new context. I found this a little difficult. I did enjoy the book and really loved the author's sense of humor. Also I did learn a good bit, but I probably need to read it again to let it all sink in.

I love music in most forms, am learning to listen to other genres of music as David suggested.  However, the author's explanation or breakdown of terminology really makes this book a Must read.  As he states in the beginning, music aficionados and musically challenged individuals will understand and Appreciate music.  He explain things in Plain English, where the reader does Not need a mathematical degree, physics degree, and so on.  His examples are logical and simple to follow, while using everyday scenarios.  Thank you David!!

I have been obsessed with music for as long as I can remember. I've always wondered how music works and John's books really opened my eyes to the complexity of music. I learned so much and because of that, I have an even greater appreciation for the music making process. How Music Works would make the perfect holiday gift for the music lover in your life.
