I bought this book after reading a bit of the first chapter on the basics of sound (frequencies, wave forms, etc). While I realise that I could have gotten this mostly from Wikipedia or other sources, I was hoping that the rest of the book would continue in this vein of actually discussing audio engineering.

Instead what I got was a chapter on the top ten microphones (did this guy just pull this straight from a Gear Slutz thread?!), a chapter on how to 'talk lingo' with a band, and how to act as an audio engineer.

If you are looking for a serious book on engineering don't waste your time with this book. Completely avoid... It's also pretty poorly written/edited but that is a whole other issue.

As a complete novice or tyro to the world of sound engineering this book does a great job of covering all the basics as well as general advice given in a way that makes you feel the author is right there with you

I really appreciated the last chapter with all those varied frequently asked questions I am too afraid to ask pros - and to be honest I don't know where to find such people so this was a real gem

A great all around buy!

Better than the 'for dummies' line of book.

Very clear and not at all a dull read for the beginner.
Quite happy
