I'd like to know more about art, music, psychology, and cognition. Since they are related to each other, I'd like to read a book with a topic covering those. Bonus if it's for beginners.

  • $\begingroup$ I confused on the plethora of suggested books. And I know almost nothing to start with a specific request $\endgroup$

Oliver Sacks has an excellent and very approachable book on the topic (psychology/cognition + music in particular, less art in general): Musicophilia.


The introductory reading section in the Wikipedia page of music psychology has a lot of suggestions.
