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.

Solid foundation for an introduction to this material.
This book is full of a LOT of information. Some of it is redundant, but I think that's better than being sparse; it allows you to have the information at your fingertips when you're looking up a particular thing you wish to understand better. Frankly, this book is best as a reference, unless you're a producer, rather than a read-through (I'm a musician and have limited self-production skills, so a lot of this book is WAY over my head).

That being said, the most valuable chapter for me was probab
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!
this book has a pretty good , historcal opening , about the germans & a neat picture of bing Crosby with his eight , alot of good information in there as well , picked it up for a class , & use it as a refrence ever since !
