The book includes comprehensive reference, author and subject indices, and the layout is admirable: fully referenced, interspersed with lists, diagrams, tables and cartoons, all of which hold the reader's interest. Schneck and Berger are passionate about music's intensely profound and penetrating effect on human behaviour, together with its use in stress and pain management, and I hope that colleagues will, like me, be motivated to explore The music effect further. -- Counselling Children and Young People
Quite a lot has been published on the psychological effects of music, but like me, have you yearned to know what changes are taking place in the body and in the brain in response to music? Something you can get your teeth into? If so, this may be the book for you. It is an interesting book, and one which makes great efforts to explain complicated matters in a simple way. -- Positive Health Magazine
The Music Effect is useful as a reference for those hypnosis professionals, who may be interested in incorporating music in their clinical work, or who want to learn more about how the effects of music can be utilized therapeutically. All in all, this is a fascinating book that covers an array of phenomena. It is well written and thoroughly referenced. -- American Journal of Clinical Hypnosis
