Stimulating, authoritative, and often lyrical, The Mozart Effect offers dramatic accounts of how doctors, musicians, and healthcare professionals use music to deal with everything form anxiety to cancer, high blood pressure, chronic pain, dyslexia, even mental illness. Students who sing or play an instrument score up to 51 points higher on SAT's than the national average.

During childbirth, music can relieve expectant mother's anxiety and help release endorphins, the body's natural painkillers, dramatically decreasing the need for anesthesia. The director of a Baltimore hospital's coronary care unit says that half an hour of classical music produces the same effect as ten milligrams of Valium. And now, whatever you listening taste, Don Campbell, explains how to make The Mozart Effect work for you.

Drawing on medicine, Eastern wisdom, and latest the research on learning and creativity, Campbell reveals how exposure to sound music, and other forms of vibration, beginning in utero, can have a lifelong effect on health, learning, and behavior. He shows how to use sound and music to stimulate learning and memory; how to strengthen listening abilities; how to use imagery to enhance The Mozart Effect; and how to harness power of toning, chanting mantras, rap, and other self-generated sounds. He lists fifty common conditions, ranging from migraines to substance abuse, for which music can be used as a treatment of cure.

Campbell also recommends more that two dozen specific, easy-to-follow exercises to help you raise you spatial IQ, sound away pain, boost creativity, and make the spirit sing. This remarkable book points the way to a healthier, more harmonious way of life-once you know what to listen for.
