Review

Here is an interesting, timely, well-written book in which everything you ever wanted to know about the compact disk and more is explained. In summary, this is a good book. It's written in plain English. It's clear that the author enjoys his subject and knows how to teach and to write. I recommend it if you are interested in the technical aspects of CDs, or even if you just enjoy good technical storytelling. Computer Music Journal compelling and fascinating reading, written by an expert with the knack of making complex explanations understandable.

6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By A Customer on October 3, 1998
Format: Paperback
This book describes very precisely all the technical aspects in relation with the compact disc: basics on digital audio processing, error correction, special coding modulation for CD and so on. The only thing we could miss is simply the fact there is no chapter on the DVD CD device: maybe in a further edition ?
In summary, a very good book to be introduced in the CD system, explained in a language which is not too difficult to understand by non-specialists (but some knowledge in DSP would be helpful).

Although it isn't easy to understand a lot of the technology that this book explains, I think it does a good job explaining the science and technology that go into CD audio. I am not an engineer or an expert, but I have enjoyed getting my head around at least some of the aspects of how CD's and CD players work.
