This book is complete, but the illustrations are rather hokey. Some of the sections get bogged down in unnecessary detail, and other leave stuff out. This is obviously something that was written a while ago, and partially updated without going through the trouble of making the illustrations better.
At the same time I bought this book, I also bought The Live Sound Manual: Getting Great Sound at Every Gig but Ben Duncan, #0879306998. This was a much more readable book, although lacking in illustrations, and geared slightly more to the professional. The only thing in Live Sound Reinforcement that wasn't in The Live Sound manual that I found useful was the one page on 'ringing out the room' to address feedback before it happens.
Both books gave good step-by-step instructions for setup and good explanations of theory, but the latter just did a better job.
