Review of 'Sound Book' on 'GoodReads'

4 stars

I read this book on the recommendation of a friend who said it "changed the way [she] experiences sound." Curious!

So I picked it up and read it. Definitely makes me pay more attention to the sounds around me, and opens up a whole world that I had previously closed off. Now I'm snapping in stairwells and talking at walls just to see what it sounds like.

Not sure if it will make me better at anything but listening & paying attention to things, but those are worthwhile things to get better at.
