"When a technical book is republished in a second or third edition, you know it's become recognised as a reference work, but when it reaches a seventh edition, I think it's legitimate to suggest that it has become something of a 'bible'! ...If you want just one reference book on audio, this one is hard to beat."
-Hugh Robjohn, Sound On Sound Magazine
"Sound and Recording: Applications and Theory, 7th Edition, is a comprehensive authoritative work, and it belongs on the reference shelf of every conscientious audio professional. I highly recommend it."
- Alan Hardiman, Professional Sound

I understand that Rumsey is a respected writer but I don't know if this is a book i would ever buy if I was an sound/audio university student (which I am not). As a study, this book is at times unreadable - there are just too many glib references to terms which themselves need explanation, but which the writer can take for granted. The text is very dense, heavy-reading, and you can't sit back and take stock. At the end of the day, you want to be good at recording and sound...not necessarily want to understand waves and so on.
