Technical, but all the basics you need to know about audio! Even in these digital times...Great read!
This is a very good book. Strait forward: it is approachable - it is written like an owner's manual and therefore, at times, can seem austere or plain but is an ultimate guide to the mathematical/scientific/acoustic means by which sound is reinforced through amplification

I'm finally done! This book has been a struggle, and I spent a lot of time looking terms and explanations up on the Internet but I'm happyI read it. I feel a lot wiser now, and only time will tell if it was worth my time. I am an amateur who helps out at my church.
This is one of the best books on sound reinforcement that I've ever come across. Owning this is a must for every sound engineer, producer, and musician.
a little outdated, but thorough on non-datable subjects like like microphone patterns and electrics
An invaluable resource for anyone in the concert, and sound reinforcement industry.

Once again boring if you are not into sound reinforcement, but informative.
