On the eve of his fortieth birthday, renowned cognitive scientist Gary Marcus decided to fulfil a lifelong dream and learn to play the guitar. He had tried many times before – failing miserably. This time, he decided to use the tools of his “trade” to see if he might suceed. On his quest he jams with twelve-year-olds and takes master classes with guitar gods. A groundbreaking exploration of the allure of music, Guitar Zero is also an empowering case for the mind’s ability to grow throughout life.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Both an entertaining account of the frustrations of a wannabe guitar hero and an intriguing enquiry into the science of learning… compelling." - New Scientist

"Guitar Zero" is a refreshing alternation between the nitty-gritty details of learning rock-guitar licks and Mr. Marcus's survey of the relevant scientific literature on learning and the brain..." ""Guitar Zero" makes some delightful counterintuitive fine points..." "For those who look forward, in "retirement," to honouring the lifelong yearnings they have neglected, "Guitar Zero" is good news." - Norman Doidge - The Wall Street Journal
