The evidence is in: music is not just entertainment - it is medicine. This book unifies medicine, Eastern wisdom and the new science of sonic healing.

The Mozart Effect offers dramatic accounts of how doctors and others use music to deal with everything from anxiety to cancer, high blood pressure, chronic pain, and even mental illness. For example, the director of a Baltimore hospital's coronary care unit found that half an hour of classical music produces the same effect as 10 milligrams of Valium. And students who sing or play an instrument score up to 51 points higher on SATs than the national average.

Drawing on the personal experiences and uplifting stories of ordinary men and women. Campbell shows us how to put the healing power of music into action. And he recommends specific, easy-to-follow exercises to help you raise your spatial IQ, sound away pain, boost creativity, and make the spirit sing. Download and start listening now!

    " I have wanted to read this ever since I heard that listening to classical music can raise SAT scores. So far, the book is good for a musician, but really is written for a non-musician. I skimmed quite a bit of the beginning but the examples and stories are fascinating. "

    " interesting ideas about music. I especially enjoyed the chapters about healing. "

    " The Mozart Effect: Tapping the Power of Music to Heal the Body, Strengthen the Mind, and Unlock the Creative Spirit is very helpful when researching about the Mozart Effect and the impact classical music has on individuals. I used this as a source for my writing arts essay, and it came in handy. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Deb | 12/10/2013

    " I love listening to and playing Mozart, but the cynical part of me says the author has a gimmick and is trying to make a buck. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tamsyn | 11/10/2013

    " I think I'm not going to finish this book for awhile so I'm taking it off my currently reading list. It seems to be a good book, but as I've heard a lot of controversial things about it and whether its really effective, I'm going to shelf it until I can do more research and the interest returns. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Luis Villasenor | 4/26/2013

    " If you want to know what the Mozart effect is according to those that believe in it then this is a good book. However, if you read this book you must read what is written about the opposite. Very interesting read. Would not recommend it to anyone who is not willing to do the researh for both sides. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michael | 12/6/2012

    " Read the first 5 chapters or so. Interesting tribute to music, but its scientific claims are not convincing. Very anecdotal. It motivated me to gather and learn lullabies. Probably nice reading for anyone who loves music, but beware of Campbell's sincere, but unproven claims and his sales pitch. "

    " This books is being used for the book group for my new ward in the Baltimore area. I'd heard of it before, let's see if I like it.

    This book was interesting. He makes most of the points with anecdotal evidence. It was okay, just a little repetitive and not very compelling. "
