The wonderful thing about this book is that it contains well-written introductions to many subjects, including sound propagation, auditory scene analysis, audio file formats, and rate conversion, that otherwise might be found in magazines, on the Internet, or not at all.
-- Robert Rowe, Audio Engineering Society , March 2005
A highly recommended supplementary educational text for anyone pursuing or involved in a career in the digital audio field.
-- Library Bookwatch, July 2004
The appeal of this book is its practical usefulness, the variety of approaches taken within some chapters, its accessibility, and the breadth of experience brought to bear, particularly from a technical perspective. In these terms, it is likely to be a handy reference book on many shelves in educational, artistic, and engineering settings, and it certainly fills a gap in some of the current tutorial offerings.
