This book is too wince-inducing to read, mostly due to its unnecessarily dumbed-down tone, its heavy reliance on meaningless wordy phrases ("In recent years"; "one of the more common complaints that some people have"), overwhelming number of typos and grammatical errors, and constant passive voice ("the following methods can be tried"). However, it contains a lot of useful information for novices.

Great book for novices to recording. Gives you some basic techniques for mic placement, goes through the nitty gritty technical details about sound. Overall though, it gives the reader the confidence in the basics to do what really makes recording great: having fun with improvising and thinking outside the box. Once you know what the "box" is, then you can have fun working outside it!
