Book Review: The Musical Human


West Lafayette Public Library Director, Nick Schenkel, reviews "The Musical Human: A History of Life on Earth."  Truly sweeping in its scope, this book is a journey through the history of humankind as heard through music.  It is chock full of facts and music, each paragraph packed with fascinating ideas, taking us from the pre-historic world to the modern age.  Truly a well thought out effort to encompass the meaning, celebrations, alarms and hope that music has inspired throughout the ages.
