Pondering the musicality of everything from bird songs to the language he calls "motherese," Dr. Witchel illustrates the power of music and addresses the questions: Why do we have music? What does music do to our emotions? Can animals hear and understand music? What does music do to your brain? Why do people listen to sad music? Why do some people like classical but others only like heavy metal? Is there some essential feature to all music? You Are What You Hear is an erudite and entertaining study that is unique in many ways. No other book has thoroughly elaborated the connection between music and social territory in humans, although in other music-making species scientists have shown this connection to be clear-cut. Given the wealth of scientific evidence and historical narratives presented in You Are What You Hear , an intellectual investigation of this avenue is long overdue. Written by a psychobiologist, the work straddles hard science and psychology, approaching music from a unique interdisciplinary perspective. Successfully bridging these strands of evidence, You Are What You Hear elucidates the significance of territory not only in music but in daily life. This lively and engaging book will have a broad appeal - not only to the general public, but to students interested in the relationship between music and culture. Anyone from seventeen to ninety-seven will have the potential to gain something from this book.

This the first book on the physics of sound for the nonspecialist to empower readers with a hands-on, ears-open approach that includes production, analysis, and perception of sound. The book makes possible a deep intuitive understanding of many aspects of sound, as opposed to the usual approach of mere description. This goal is aided by hundreds of original illustrations and examples, many of which the reader can reproduce and adjust using the same tools used by the author. Readers are positioned to build intuition by participating in discovery. This introduction to sound engages and informs amateur and professional musicians, performers, teachers, sound engineers, students of many stripes, and indeed anyone interested in the auditory world. The book does not hesitate to follow entertaining and sometimes controversial side trips into the history and world of acoustics, reinforcing key concepts. You will discover how musical instruments really work, how pitch is perceived, and how sound can be amplified with no external power source.

A CRY IN THE WOODS The scream Lena Riddle hears in the woods behind her house is enough to curdle her blood—she has no doubt that a woman is in real danger. Unfortunately, with no physical evidence, the local law officers in small-town Ash, Kentucky, dismiss her claim. But Lena knows what she heard—and it leaves her filled with fear and frustration. Ezra King is on leave from the state police, but he can’t escape the guilty memories that haunt his dreams. When he sees Lena, he is immediately drawn to her. He aches to touch her—to be touched by her—but is he too burdened by his tragic past to get close? When Ezra hears her story of an unknown woman’s screams, his instincts tell him that Lena’s life is also at risk—and his desire to protect her is as fierce as his need to possess her.

The ring tone of insanity within sanity, the game of this trick is it wrong or right. The trick is the wo-man in the mirror, a reflection that has a sight for sore eyes. The source of seeing with a match of light to influence the hearing, to take heeds to the shakes, rattles and rolls. Remember my motto, exaggeration of the truth and a lie. Welcome to Do you hear what I hear, the second of the trilogy, which brews within my mind. The captivation of many thoughts put in a picture of hearing in its devastating ring. Seeing is the evidence of fantasizing within view but what is sound brewing. The classifications of a horror, the program of statements to fling open the door to chapters of suspense. The words of expression to a system, to read with a boost in thought. The recalculation of a formula stirring within the syllables, forming a solution to handling the rejuvenation of panic, to make it secondary placement in this spin. To the adjustment of paying attention to the hints for an enlighten ending. Hint; a servant to "all" With a see you later, one more is yet to come. Finalizing, 3 is a charm.

There is much that can be said in a gentle touch or a lingering grin, which the astute will see, hear, and understand, and the oblivious will ignore. Communication is an art form, slowly giving way to hurried texts and 140 characters of garbled articulation. Whether you know it or not, you send communicative signals all day long: in your speech, body language, and attitudes...but who is listening? In a world filled with an abundance of verbal noise and clutter, learn to overcome the obstacles keeping you from interpreting messages, as they were ultimately intended. Discovering the hidden cues and undercurrent of a conversation can be beautiful and inspiring, but you must be willing to listen, with both your head and heart. Woven throughout the pages of this powerful book is a path to heightened conversation, where the quiet, silent moments may speak just as loudly as the uttered words.
