As far as I know this book is one of a kind in its field, theres no other book which covers topics like electrical wiring and grounding directly focused towards the recording studio needs. It is definitely technically oriented, the math is by no means heavy duty but its definitely directed towards proffesional EE's or technicians rather than audio aficionados, yet the content of this book can be applied even to the smallest home recording studio.
Its a shame that this book is no longer being published.
Grounding and termination practices are covered in depth. You will be smarter about signal flow and design practices after going through this book.
I recommend reading this book from cover to cover and taking careful notes of the contents and specific information pertinent to one's work. Since the coverage of the book is vast, any given reader may not use all the information. But it is good at least to be exposed to it once. One never knows when one will need it.
Note to Amazon: Please consider acquiring the rights to this book and publishing it in electronic form. Many of us in the professional audio world would be grateful!
Now we just need them to reprint it, I would buy 2 right now at the original price.
