5.0 out of 5 stars One of the definitive Game Music Composer guide, 15 Jun. 2014
Not only a fantastic read for Composers looking to break into the world of Game Music Composition, but an incredibly insightful, thought provoking read for those already on track in the industry, as well as for Concert Composers who are looking for different ideas for their work.

Using direct examples from her own Game Compositions, as well as drawing from other Game Soundtracks, it has given me a much needed boost in confidence in writing my own music, looking in-depth at the nuances in an easy-to-understand fashion whilst also perfectly striking the balance of treating the reader as an intelligent person.

Definitely one of the go-to books for Video Game Composers, and is much needed given the many books now out solely aimed at composition for Film and Television, when the two mediums can be quite different from each other.

Fantastic book from a fantastic composer - essential for a composer's book collection, I heartily recommend it!

5.0 out of 5 stars A great book., 5 Jun. 2004
This is an excellent book to have if you are interested in learning to use a Jo but haven't got someone in your area to teach you. It includes a range of attacks that you can learn, it also teaches you a kata (The 31-step kata) and gives demonstrations on what effects the attacks and defence moves have on an opponant. The illustrations are superb. A must buy for all Aikido fanatics!
