|New from||Used from|
"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

Most of context are correct though there are some room to improve to cover more up to date technology.
Basic principle never changed, which is well covered in this book.
I perceive Sakkas' review as pretty harsh. While it may be true this is not a book for experienced, accomplished recording engineers, it's the best introductory work I've encountered. I liked the book's organization and the author's writing style. For those of us who are non-experts, this book is well worth the price, imho.
It was the sub-title that fooled me: "Getting the Most Out of Your Project or Professional Recording Studio." As an amateur musician who just wants to make a few recordings as a hobby or to support the occasional gig, and NOT as a sound engineer nor an engineer wannabe, I regret the purchase of what I can now see is more of a textbook aimed at audio engineering students. I had the same issue with the David Franz book, but I returned that one. (Seriously, do people wire their own cables any more? I mean, I have a soldering iron, but that's not how I want to spend my time. :-) )
I was wondering if anyone would kindly suggest a book more appropriate for me, that is, one that focuses on helping a consumer pick components that work together, how to connect things safely, how to avoid common pitfalls, best practices, how to arrange the studio (or the gig) to be effective without over-doing it. I will confess that the whole balancing-gain-against-volume thing is eluding me. Thanks!
