Review:

'An excellent starting point for anyone wanting to know more about the role of music in human experience.' Source: The Psychologist

'An insightful book on a fascinating subject.' Source: The Lady

'A fascinating insight into our relationship with music.' Author: Claudia Sunderhauf Source: Waterstones.com

‘Dr Vicky Williamson's love of and fascination with the book's subject rolls off every page. She conveys the mystery and magic of music in a very clear and understandable way that makes not just for a compelling read but also one that will make you hear and listen to music in new ways’. Author: Jonathan Morrish Source: PPL

'With a clear and conversational style, Williamson shares anecdotes as a springboard to discussing a range of experimental evidence for such intriguing uses. The reader gains considerable insight into how music can modulate emotional experiences. You Are the Music demonstrates how much the music within us matters. Remaining practical and thoughtful throughout, Williamson incisively places music in a biological context.' Source: Science

'Her survey provides an uncomplicated look at music’s power to impact human behaviour - ****' Source: BBC Music Magazine
