Best books: Yoko Ono

Yoko Ono is a musician and performance-art pioneer. Her new album is Between My Head and the Sky.

For The Week magazine, she named a best books list. One title on the list:
This Is Your Brain on Music: The Science of a Human Obsession by Daniel J. Levitin (Plume, $16).

This is a fascinating exploration of the relationship between music and the mind. Since our planet essentially moves to music, you might want to get to know a few things about music and its history.
Read about the other five books on Yoko Ono's list.
