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