Review:

A magnificent addition to the growing body of literature devoted to the newly emerging field of sound therapy by an author who has been instrumental in its development and recognition. Insightful, lucid, and engaging, The Power of Sound is the first important book on sound therapy for the twenty-first century. It should be read by anyone interested in the true nature of music's potential as a healing modality. Bravo, Mr. Leeds! -- Randall McClellan, Ph.D., author of The Healing Forces of Music

An indispensable guidebook to a new awareness of sound, and an exceptional resource for personal and professional use. Educators, therapists, and anyone with ears will find Joshua Leeds's work inspiring and practical as they endeavor to promote learning, performance, and well-being. -- Sheila Smith Allen, MA, OTR, BCP, Codirector of Pediatric Therapeutics

Anyone with a sense of hearing will want to read this book. . . . hard to put down. -- Donna Blohowiak, New Age Retailer, September 2001

In this fascinating book, Joshua Leeds discusses the work done by Tomatis and Doman to stimulate the ear and, hence, the body. -- Anabeth Cox and Ted Cox, New Age Retailer, May/June 2002

Joshua Leeds points to the future for the entire music community--musicians, producers, engineers, composers, and business people. I applaud his generosity in sharing the psychoacoustic techniques he has developed and utilized to great effect. In combining music and science, Leeds has achieved a dramatic advance in the use of music and sound for empowerment and change. -- Joe Harnell, Grammy Award-winning composer, pianist, and author of Counterpoint: The Journey of a Music Man
