    Eisenberg’s a clever and funny writer of features for The Atlantic and The New Yorker. His book is not a history – its an eccentric, anecdotal excursion into the psychology, economics and aesthetics of recorded music and what’s fascinating is that it barely grazes the digital era and serves as a reminder that making a permanent record of the experience of music was awkward and controversial long before the CD and the MP3.
