Healing at the Speed of Sound: Japanese Edition Released

HATSOS_JAPAN

My book Healing at the Speed of Sound® was released in Japan today by ASCII Media Works, although I have yet to hold the Japanese edition in my hands. This adds to the list of English, Korean, French and Complex Chinese editions. I’m delighted that our message of the transformative power of music and sound is continuing to spread globally.

My co-author Don Campbell (also bestselling author of The Mozart Effect®) taught music in Japan in the early years of his career. He had a deep affection for the country and its people. I know how much this book release would please him. This is me raising a celebratory cup of Ginjo to you Don, Kanpai!

For English speaking readers, Healing at the Speed of Sound is available in hardcover, paperback, eBook (kindle, Nook), enhanced eBook (kindle fire, Nook color, iTunes), and audio book wherever books are sold.

If you’ve read Healing at the Speed of Sound I’d love to hear from you. Let me know what steps you’ve taken to make music and sound part of your health and wellness practice.

For you English speaking readers, Healing at the Speed of Sound is available in hardcover, paperback, eBook (kindle, Nook), enhanced eBook (kindle fire, Nook color, iTunes), and audio book wherever books are sold.

Healing at the Speed of Sound En Francais

Les sons qui transforment votre vie

Quelle merveille! A package arrived at the office yesterday. And what was inside? A fantastic surprise, five copies of the French edition of Healing at the Speed of Sound®, translation- Les sons qui transforment votre vie.

What makes the French edition particularly special is that my dear friend and co-author Don Campbell loved France. He moved there from South Texas in his adolescence. At 13 he was the youngest student at the American Conservatory in Fontainebleau, studying under the much revered French composer, conductor, and teacher Nadia Boulanger. And, it was the visionary French physician Dr. Alfred Tomatis who influenced so much of Don’s work. While Don traveled the world extensively, the French culture seemed to resonate deep within him.

If Don were still here with us I’m sure he would be as thrilled as I to know our message of the transformative power of music and sound is growing each day, and is now reaching French speakers!

You can find Les sons qui transforment votre vie here.

Don Campbell Memorial Service

Back in June my dear friend Don Campbell passed away of pancreatic cancer at age 65. Don was an authority on the transformative power of music, my co-author on Healing at the Speed of Sound® and author of 22 additional books including The Mozart Effect®.

My wife Mandy and I were privileged to attend Don’s Memorial in Boulder, Colorado on June 13th where we celebrated Don’s life together with friends and his family; in words, music, laughter, prayer and meditation. Don influenced countless people across the globe, most of whom could not join us for this glorious celebration. For those who could not be there I am pleased to share that some of his talented friends produced a wonderful video of the service which you can view below.

Even if you didn’t know Don, if you watch this video you’ll come to appreciate him, simply by seeing how he touched those who knew and could not help but love this amazing being.

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!

7 Week Update

Over the course of the last week the team behind Healing at the Speed of Sound™ has been busy preparing for the book launch on September 29th.

A couple of book trailers are in production. The trailer for the enhanced e-book edition will debut late next week. Filming for that was completed in Colorado yesterday and is now in the hands of our video editor in Los Angeles. This evening I saw the first storyboard for the full book trailer and am thrilled with the direction it is heading.

More news is that our music production team completed Music for Healing at the Speed of Sound™ Volumes 1 and 2.  Masters are complete, packaging designed, and manufacturing starts next week. The official street date for these albums is October 11th. More information on the music coming soon!

My co-author Don Campbell and me are excited to share vital information about the impact of noise on your health, the importance of silence, and how to help you use sound and music to transform your life! More updates coming soon.
