Planet Drum: A Celebration of Percussion and Rhythm

January 1, 1998

Mickey Hart’s dazzling companion to his bestselling Drumming at the Edge of Magic is a captivating chronicle of our global fascination with drums and the primal rhythms and spells of percussion, dramatically illustrated with 350 photographs and illustrations.

  • Mickey hart writes a great book. he really does.I never dreamed there was so much depth to percussion.the companion book, drumming at the edge of magic has more words and fewer pictures than this one. which I prefer personally buy both. They're worth it really both.

  • A comprehensive book of drums throughout the world. I sent this copy to my grandson who is studying drumming, and he loved it.
    I have several of Mickey Hart's books, and they're all great. Inspiring, and well-illustrated

  • I have read this before, and enjoyed it so much that I purchased it for two wonderful drummers that I know, one a young man who is in my congregation who has a real gift as a drummer, and who I wanted to affirm and encourage, and one a friend of mine who is as enthusiastic as Mickey Hart is. This is a fabulous and magical book that will turn even those who are lukewarm about drumming into people who "get it.
