Brain On Music
There's a nice website for Dan Levitin's book This is Your Brain on Music. The Science of a Human Obsession. I wanted to have part of this book required for the ANTH398D course but, for several reasons, I replaced it with Ian Cross's discussion of the evolutionary impact of music. Levitin's book may still be an entertaining read and his site is full of interesting bits about music from a rather broad perspective (that of both a professional musician and a psychology prof).
