"Gary Marcus, one of the deepest thinkers in cognitive science, has given us an entertaining and enlightening memoir, filled with insight about music, learning, and the human mind." --Steven Pinker, author of The Better Angels of Our Nature
"Marcus is one of the smartest psychologists around, a deep thinker and an eloquent writer, and the story he tells is informed by the best science of perception and learning and evolution, talent and effort, genius and frustration and success. If you have ever dreamed of becoming a musician, you simply must read Guitar Zero." --Paul Bloom, author of How Pleasure Works
"Guitar Zero is a refreshing alternation between the nitty-gritty details of learning rock-guitar licks and Mr. Marcus's survey of the relevant scientific literature on learning and the brain. For those who look forward, in "retirement" to honoring the lifelong yearnings they have neglected, Guitar Zero is good news." --Norman Doidge, Wall Street Journal
On the eve of his fortieth birthday, scientist Gary Marcus decided to fulfil a lifelong dream and learn to play the guitar, investigating how humans 'make' music and how anyone of any age might master a new skill. In a quest that takes him from Suzuki classes to guitar gods, Marcus discovers the best ways to train your brain and your body. He also brings insight into the question, What counts as a life well lived? A groundbreaking look at the origins and allure of music, Marcus's journey is also an empowering tale of the mind's plasticity and its ability to grow throughout life.
