Listen to the Music Book Description:

Dr. Hilary Koprowski is the pioneer of live polio vaccine, the first researcher to advance the diagnostic and therapeutic use of monoclonal antibodies, and the developer of the "gold standard" rabies vaccine. A world-reknowned maverick in biomedical research, Koprowski's research methods were often considered controversial and even radical. Nonetheless, he acquired key positions in many research organizations, such as the Rockefeller Foundation, Lederle Labs, and Wistar Institute, initiating landmark studies from cancer research to multiple sclerosis. One of his crowning achievements, the successful crusade for monoclonal antibodies, resulted in his founding of Centocor, a forerunner in the corporate world of biomedicine. This account of Koprowski's life history is a mixture of personal interviews, anecdotes, and legends of the art and science behind the man.

Listen To The Music Book Description:

Music is an integral part of our everyday lives but while we listen, we seldom hear the music. If you really listen to your favorite classic rock songs, you will find that they may tell a story, offer a thought-provoking message, inspire or spark the imagination. Listen to the Music reveals the overlooked messages hidden within the music of the 60’s & 70’s – messages that provide us with Timeless Lessons of Life. The book spotlights over 1100 excerpts from the lyrics of 750 songs written by 160 artists who launched their careers in the 60’s & 70’s. The music of this era reflects the turbulent events of two decades marked by unprecedented social, political, and economic change. Artists expressed through their music and lyrics what people were feeling during those turbulent times – love, anger, fear, frustration and hopes & dreams for peace and a better world. The complex challenges Americans faced in the 60’s and 70’s are strikingly similar to the times we find ourselves in today and the reader will discover that the messages hidden within the music of the 60’s & 70’s remain as relevant as they were 40 years ago. Life unfolds in much the same way for all of us. We grow up, fall in love, raise a family, live our everyday lives, cope with unexpected challenges and we grow wiser (not older)! Relevant lyric quotes can be found in chapters that correspond to one of these six stages of life. Through the captivating messages contained within the lyrics of the music of the 60’s and 70’s, the book shows how music affects our lives in ways we don’t fully realize or understand. Go to to hear some great music and to see photos of some of your favorite 60’ & 70’s artists!

My Music Book Description:

A first-hand exploration of the diverse roles music plays in people's lives. My Music is a first-hand exploration of the diverse roles music plays in people's lives. "What is music about for you?" asked members of the Music in Daily Life Project of some 150 people, and the responses they received — from the profound to the mundane, from the deeply-felt to the flippant — reflect highly individualistic relationships to and with music. Susan Crafts, Daniel Cavicchi, and Project Director Charles Keil have collected and edited nearly forty of those interviews to document the diverse ways in which people enjoy, experience, and use music. CONTRIBUTORS: Charles Keil, George Lipsitz.

The Music Instinct Book Description:

From Bach fugues to Indonesian gamelan, from nursery rhymes to rock, music has cast its light into every corner of human culture. But why music excites such deep passions, and how we make sense of musical sound at all, are questions that have until recently remained unanswered. Now in The Music Instinct, award-winning writer Philip Ball provides the first comprehensive, accessible survey of what is known--and still unknown--about how music works its magic, and why, as much as eating and sleeping, it seems indispensable to humanity. Deftly weaving together the latest findings in brain science with history, mathematics, and philosophy, The Music Instinct not only deepens our appreciation of the music we love, but shows that we would not be ourselves without it. The Sunday Times hailed it as "a wonderful account of why music matters," with Ball's "passion for music evident on every page."
