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.

Healing at the Speed of Sound Paperback Giveaway

 

Would you like to win an autographed copy of my Bestseller Healing at the Speed of Sound®? Read on and I’ll tell you how!

Each author has their own reason to write. And the creative process is different for us all.  The motivation my co-author Don Campbell and I had for writing Healing at the Speed of Sound was to share that sound is an unrecognized pillar of health.  Our message… noise harms, and sound, music and silence can heal.  It seems our readers recognize the real impact sound has in their lives, and are taking control of the power of sound to improve their mind, body, and spirit!

Healing at the Speed of Sound was released in paperback by Plume this week, just a little over a year following the hardcover release. This milestone is bittersweet. You see, my good friend Don passed away earlier this year. He is on my mind as are memories of our nearly three years spent writing the book together.

Writing with Don was a remarkable process.  Don was a seasoned author who took me, the apprentice under his wing.  In his career Don wrote 23 books translated in nearly as many languages. Included among them the groundbreaking Bestseller The Mozart Effect®.  Don was conceivably the most creative person I have ever known; whereas, I tend more toward linearity.  He wrote with light speed, me, well… This post will take about an 90 minutes to write!  We combined his inspired genius with my practical mindset and penned a book that fused our shared interests and unique perspectives.

There were many memorable moments in our writing journey, but what sticks with me most is the trust Don had in me to share my ideas, merge them with his, and together craft a message that will forever hold great meaning for us both. There were times in the creative process I hit the wall, writers block! I could not extract the ideas in my mind to the written word. These were occasions I practiced what I teach and turned to my muse, music.

What music, artist or songs bring you creative inspiration? Share in the comments before noon mountain time on Tuesday, November 6th.  After I cast my vote I’ll select my favorite comments and pick two winners to receive an autographed copy of Healing at the Speed of Sound in paperback! The winners will be announced in the comments. Good luck!

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

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.
