An excellent book.
A sad story.
Wash/ Rinse/ Repeat.
This is an almost-perfect illustration of how my life has gone.
Music is a holy place, a cathedral so majestic that we can sense the magnificence of the universe, and also a hovel so simple and private that none of us can plumb its deepest secrets.―
I read The Mozart Effect by the late Don Campbell (2012) in the late 1990s. In the opinion of many (including me), it was destined to become a classic! Campbell was the authoritative voice for the transformative power of music — and in particular, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart‘s music. But I’m getting ahead of myself… because it begins with music… ANY music… rock and rap included! Whatever moves ya!
Campbell dares to suggest that music doesn’t just make us feel better… but actually heals.
Music sets up a certain vibration which unquestionably results in a physical reaction. Eventually, the proper vibration for every person will be found and utilized. – George Gershwin

Been a professional musician for most of my life (when I was well enough) ~ you won’t get any argument from me here!
