Books similar to Musicophilia by Oliver Sacks?

Asked by RedmannX5 (814points) August 4th, 2010 from iPhone

I just got done reading the book Musicophilia by Oliver Sacks and I loved it! The main subject was how music affects the human brain, and also talked a lot about music therapy. I am currently majoring in Psychology but my main passion is music. Does anyone know of any good books to read that are around the same subject of Musicophilia? Thank you :)

Thank you nikipedia, Oliver Sacks actually referenced Levitin a lot in Musicophilia, I should have thought of that one!
