From the reviews of the fourth edition:
"This book deals with the physical systems and biological processes that interact with music, analyzing `what objective, physical properties of sound patterns are associated with what subjective, psychological sensations of music.' ... Roederer is well known for promoting music as a multidisciplinary subject. ... While there are plenty of good books on the physics of music ... Roederer's classic is the best. This book will be an asset to any scientific library." (Soubhik Chakraborty, ACM Computing Reviews, November, 2009)
"This book ... not only suitable for lay-readers, but can also act as a springboard for more technically minded readers wishing to pursue a thorough foray into the field. ... open questions which makes the reader want to come back for more. Credit can only be given to the author for creating such an engaging read. ... this fourth edition of the book incorporates a number of recent results supporting hypotheses posited in earlier versions ... ." (Matthew R. Foreman, Contemporary Physics, Vol. 52 (3), May-June, 2011)
"The different aspects of the close relationship between science and music are discussed in this book. ... will be of interest to the non-science student, or simply to the music addict teenager ... . The book will definitively be pleasant ... reading for a scientist with a strong interest or love in music." (Gary J. Long and Fernande Grandjean, Belgian Physical Society Magazine, Issue 3, 2010)
