Product description

Review

'This book is the long-awaited biography of Alan Blumlein, a true genius. I highly recommend it. Pro sound engineers, design engineers and audiophiles will find it fascinating.'
Bruce Bartlett, Pro Audio Review

'Fascinating man, fascinating inventions, fascinating story behind the 30 year wait for a biography. We recommend you read it - our congratulations to the author.'
Everyday Practical Electronics, November 1999

'Thanks for the quick delivery of the Blumlein book, for which we have been waiting at least 25 years! ... In the audio community, every enthusiast will wish to own this book.'
Audio Amateur Incorporated, September 1999

'One of the most complete accounts of the development of Blumlein's invention. A fine tribute which must be considered a standard reference.'
Gramophone, 1999 Awards Issue

'Through extraordinary hard work, Alexander has now raised this man [Blumlein] from the dead.'
New Scientist, October 1999

'This is a 'must read' book ... I found it quite impossible to put down.'
Line Up, October/November 1999

'I recommend this book for all aspiring - and those of us in need of inspiring - engineers'
Studio Sound, December 1999

'The Inventor of Stereo reads at times like a spy novel, with Blumlein as one of the main characters... Engaging, enlightening and only slightly nerdy, The Inventor of Stereo is a fascinating and enjoyable read.'
Mix magazine, February 2000

'I sincerely doubt if anyone will ever better this book on the subject of Blumlein.'
405 Alive magazine, issue 43
