'It was wildly ambitious to try and turn this galaxy of theory into a readable work of scholarship but Byrne has done it, and done it with style. Brian Eno might as well cancel that book deal now' - Mark Ellen, The Observer
'As well as being an investigation into the context in which music is made, How Music Works is an accomplished celebration of an ever-evolving art form that can alter how we look at ourselves and the world' - Fiona Sturges, The Independent
'Brilliantly original' - The New York Times Book Review
