Ever wonder what MP3 is really about and why it is important. Wonder what the standard (whatever that is) really means? Well if you really want to know the whys about how music is stored on your computer and iPod, then this is the book for you. It goes into great detail about all the hows and whys. Also talks about the next generation of standard formats and why they will do an even better job at reproducing music. Not for the technically challenged.

Jonathan Sterne is simply great. If you want to lear about what is called as "Sound Studies" or "Aural studies" you definitely need to read his books, including this one. Clear, easy, documented and a enjoyable reading. A must. Someone should invest translating his books to other major languages.

A college treatise written in hideous "college speak" as opposed to English. Not useful for the casual reader. May not be useful for anyone; don't know. I abandoned ship after the first chapter.

Unless you are interested in a lot of excruciating nomenclature and exhaustive details about every and all aspects of music formats, this is not going to be a fun read for you. I got about 20 pages in and gave up. Ugh.
