Healing at the Speed of Sound Apple’s ‘Top 10 Enhanced Books of the Year’ iTunes Rewind 2011

This afternoon I heard exciting news from one of my editors at Hudson Stress Press-Penguin Group USA that I just had to share.

Last week Apple released its iTunes Rewind selections for 2011, revealing the best music, apps, TV shows, movies, books and podcasts of the year. And… Healing at the Speed of Sound® was awarded as one of the ’Top 10 Enhanced Books of the Year’!

This is a prestigious honor awarded to only a handful of books selected by Apple’s editorial staff, and based on best-selling purchases of the year.  I’m thrilled to see the great response we continue to get to the book from the media, our readers, and now from Apple!

This is my first post since the book was released on September 29th. The book launch has been a whirlwind of activity. Now that things are settling down somewhat I plan to start sharing information here more frequently. Thank you all for your support!

    Heard an interview with you on the radio last night.
    Different music for different jobs/people.

    How about “quiet”? That works best for me!
    If I hear music, I stop and listen.
    If I want to work/think – I need quiet.
    It has become a rare commodity of late!

      Hi Josh,

      Yes, different music for different jobs, different people, and absolutely some quiet! Quiet is often what is best for me too as it is many of us. While write this reply to you for example.

      In Healing at the Speed of Sound we expand on the conversation Kai Ryssdal and I had on APM Marketplace of what music is right in the workplace with much detail and highlight the need for periods of sound breaks. You can have too much of a good thing, including music.

      The bigger message is to be aware of your sound environment, understand that noise does harm, and that the right sounds can greatly improve our lives.

      Alex
