This book is a nice overview of electronic and computer music (as one might gather from the title.) It's great to sit near a computer and research some of the composers and pieces discussed, as many of them are on youtube and at least sound clips are available somewhere online. You're not going to learn how to program or compose from this book, but it's great for getting a decent background of what went on from 1890-1990.

This book is a must have in addition with the Chadabe's Electric Sound, and Holmes's Electronic and Experimental Music. Manning gets more specific about the qualities and characteristics of electronic music. A must have for those actively involved in the production, recording, technical, compositional, or performance aspects of computer music.
