The author of the New York Times best seller and Los Angeles Times Book Award Finalist This Is Your Brain on Music tunes us in to six evolutionary musical forms that brought about the evolution of human culture. An unprecedented blend of science and art, Daniel Levitin´s debut, This Is Your Brain on Music, delighted readers and listeners with an exuberant guide to the neural impulses behind those songs that make our heart swell. Now he showcases his daring theory of ´´six songs´´, illuminating how the brain evolved to play and listen to music in six fundamental forms - for knowledge, friendship, religion, joy, comfort, and love. Preserving the emotional history of our lives and of our species, from its very beginning music was also allied to dance, as the structure of the brain confirms; developing this neurological observation, Levitin shows how music and dance enabled the social bonding and friendship necessary for human culture and society to evolve.Blending cutting-edge scientific findings with his own sometimes hilarious experiences as a musician and music-industry professional, Levitin´s sweeping study also incorporates wisdom gleaned from interviews with icons ranging from Sting and Paul Simon to Joni Mitchell and David Byrne, along with classical musicians and conductors, historians, anthropologists, and evolutionary biologists. The result is a brilliant revelation of the prehistoric yet elegant systems at play when we sing and dance at a wedding or cheer at a concert-or tune out quietly with an iPod. 1. Language: English.

As Christians, we want to make a difference in this world. We want to have an impact not only on our immediate family and community, but on wider social issues. We want to protect the vulnerable and engage with the issues that really matter. But how? This audiobook shows us how wonderful, liberating, and empowering it is to be made in God´s image and how this changes how we see ourselves and all other humans and how we treat them and advocate for them. Some will feel the call to run for office...others will roll up their sleeves and join the good work of nonprofit ministry...and others might simply find little ways to incorporate this vision of human dignity into their everyday lives and change their community one word, one action, one person at a time. Each one of us can be, and is called to be, part of this new movement - a human dignity revolution that our societies need and that we are uniquely placed as Christians to join. This compelling audiobook shows you how to join the dignity revolution. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Daniel Darling.
