Why does music affect us so profoundly? It impacts the way we think, talk, feel, behave and even spend money. With his conversational style, humour and endless knowledge, scientist and musician John Powell showcases fascinating studies - for example that shoppers spend more money in stores that play classical music and, even more astounding, they are more likely to buy German wine in stores playing German music. With chapters on music and emotions, music as medicine, music and intelligence, and much more, 'Why We Love Music' journeys through the psychology and science of music.
