A Brief Insight is a series of concise, engrossing, and enlightening books that explore every subject under the sun with unique insight.

Music is omnipresent in human culture-but why do we enjoy it so much? What meaning does it have in our lives? How does it function as a symbol of identity? And do men and women process music differently?

Nicholas Cook takes a fascinating look at a variety of styles-from traditional and folk to classical, rock, pop, and jazz-and investigates the personal, cultural, and social values embedded in these different forms.
