Ordering this book and spend the time waiting for it to come was worth every single seconds and penny of it. It gives a full detailed information of anything that audio engineers needs to know. I would recommend every single audio engineer to buy one of these book as it will solve all your problems and will give you information that you need to know.

Heavy on science, not filler. Reads like a textbook, not a novel. At 1700 pages this thing has more information than I can process in a month.

As long as you are aware that this is a highly technical book, you will really enjoy it. It is the best book I have seen for learning the basics of running live, or for that matter, studio sound. This will answer the questions you may have that old timers can't answer - why do you do that? Often times they do from instinct the things in this book, because they work, but cannot explain why they work. This is money well spent. An excellent resource.
