I found myself taking it to recording sessions, and referring to it after a session when I had come across a difficulty. There are some great tips for miking instruments, and explain the nuances of different instruments. It is advice from someone who has been in the industry for a long time, and has spent his time gleaning tricks and tips to pass on to the beginner (or even those who have been in the field a long time).
5 stars. If you're on the fence, I can make your decision easy: buy it.
A great companion to this book is The Mixing Engineer's Handbook by the same author, Bobby Owsinski.
Contrary to popular belief, there is more music in this world than just rock n' roll.
I was hoping to get something with more scope, including choral, orchestral, sound for film, etc.
Very disappointed. Wasted my money.
