Excellent step-by-step guide to audio editing with Audacity,
This review is from: Getting Started with Audacity 1.3 (Paperback)
I use Audacity on my multimedia journalism courses and, with just one reservation, I'd recommend this book highly. It's a great starter guide.
Very clear, step-by-step approach (about 200 mono pages with screenshots, plus numerous hints and tips along the way)
An ideal starting point for online journalists, bloggers and students. (Includes easy-to-follow advice on using Skype/Audacity to record interviews and how to submit podcast-ready audio files to iTunes)
Very good chapters on `beyond the basics' (how to use echo, EQ, compression, ducking etc).
Helpful guide to output file formats and how to extend Audacity with plugins and libraries.
The price. Sorry, but an RRP of £24.99 ($39.99 US) is a bit too steep, in my view. However, an e-book version is available on the Packt website and watch out for Amazon deals.
This book will have you weaving audio magic in no time ... if you can afford it.

There is a Kindle edition available for about half the book price. Getting started with Audacity 1.3
Though I got my ebook on Packt for about 10 bucks on a superb Oct deal.
