This is fundamentally a text book devoted to praxis, not a critical or aesthetic book in any way. As such, it is written for the fledgling New Media composer, who may very well also be a fledgling composer and/or musician as well. The book introduces concepts and practices that will be beyond second nature to composers and musicians with even moderate experience. However, those composers and musicians who are new to New Media production will still find value in this book, as it steps the user through the specific formats and ideas applicable to New Media, the end result being a decent portfolio of samples of all types of music and cues. Be warned that the writing is exceedingly simplistic and dull, and that the musical examples the author provides are underwhelming.
