Review quote

"The scholarship and vast knowledge of both music and statistical methods that are demonstrated by the author are incredibly impressive. If you have a strongly developed interest in music from listening, performance, composition, or study, I think that you would certainly enjoy having the opportunity at least to peruse this book." --Technometrics, Aug 2004show more
