Delightful read about "listening". Each chapter is dedicated to an approach to listening to music, and there is a list of songs to investigate at the end of each chapter. As the type of person that immerses them-self in what they listen to, the book struck a (heh...) chord with me from the first page.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED for folks that are interested in listening to music with a different ear.
