Reading this book will enable you to learn 3 things:
1) How sound equipment works
2) How to set up and operate it
3) The basics of electricity and sound physics.
If you master the information contained in this book you will be a very effective engineer.
That is not the case with this book. Without fail, every single audio engineer I've met learned SOMETHING from reading the Sound Reinforcement handbook. Collected in these pages is the wisdom of a generation of Audio Engineers, and given that our field is one that is so much based on oral tradition, a book like this is invaluable for someone who doesn't have the time or inclination to learn things in the traditional way by hanging around in recording studios working for free.
If you want to do anything in audio technology it would behoove you to learn this book backwards and forwards, because it contains between it's covers one of the most thorough and balanced presentations ever written on the topic. A great book.
I'm just an amature.
Anyway this book seems to be the best reference out there for beginners.
It has lot of details and some theory that will help you understand how a sound system works.
This book is a must for any one serious about doing there job. Amateur or Pro wanna be.
