Very academic and dull treatment of topic
First of all, this is not an introduction to music. This is a book where the author discusses competing models for understanding music. It is not very exicting.
Then the author makes selective use of facts to back up his assertions. I'm no music expert but he leaves out obvious examples when they don't agree with what he is trying to present.
Moving onto the narrative. I feel like I am being lectured for the bad things that I have done while listening to her. I could tolerate her reading in another book where the topic was of particular interest to me. But her reading combined with content that was annoying me was too much.
