Review

S.D. Katz, millimeter magazine, February 2003
"Topics are not shortchanged... The chapter on dialogue editing alone is worth the price of the book."

Michael Pastore, Epublishers Weekly
"The book's audio CD ... is a valuable collection of sounds and tutorials that are expertly coordinated with the book's text."

4.0 out of 5 stars 2 thumbs up ! Feb. 5 2010
Format:Paperback
Probably one of the most useful books on the subject(s) I've read. I've been teaching audio for 6 years now and have read dozens of audio books..this one is right up there in the top 5. It's very difficult to find useful material on dialog editing so that chapter is fantastic and it's the first time I've seen photographs describing mic pickup patterns...brilliant!
I suspect we'll be purchasing it as a course text in the near future.

5.0 out of 5 stars A definitive book on post production sound Jan. 6 2009
By R. Buncher - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I have the first edition of this book and decided to buy the second as well. There are a few thing Jay Rose added to this book that were not in the first edition. This book and also Rose's "Producting Great Sound for Digital Video" are well organized, clearly written and have greatly helped my understanding of how to deal with sound both in production and post. He goes into much detail regarding postproduction manipulation of sound. I constantly refer to these books.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best book on Audio Post Production Sept. 25 2009
By Lucien - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Most books on Audio Post are practically useless. Some of them amount to no more than a rambling collection of memoirs. Others just discuss basic job descriptions. Occasionally, you'll ind a book that gets into more technical details, but mostly reads like a how-to manual on Pro Tools.

This book is the most refreshing and informative book I have found yet. Not only does Mr. Rose get into great detail about specific techniques, but he does it in a non-application specific way. I doesn't matter if you use Pro Tools, Nuendo, Logic, or even a hardware based audio system. His tips transcend each platform and tech you how to really get something done. (as it should be)

So if you already know what a compressor, eq, etc is and how to use them, and you want to read about some suggestions on new way HOW to apply them- get this book.

Ever after 10 years, I learned some new stuff. (and was reminded of things I forgot!)

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, excellent book Aug. 27 2010
By Tim Warneka - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
As a self-taught videographer and phonographer, I cannot stress how excellent this book is!

As an author, I wish I could write technical information like Jay Rose.

If you are interested in improving your audio on any project, this book is worth twice the price!

Highly, highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars EXTREMELY useful book, highly recommended June 7 2010
By Brian Gilbert - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is very well-written, practical, and informative. I've been involved in broadcast audio in one form or another for over 20 years, and the only other books I've seen on this subject have been "textbook" style... in other words, they were written to be used along with a professor in a classroom situation. While Jay's book would certainly work well in a class, it works equally well on its own, i.e., you don't need a professor to get the most out of this book. He also understands that people reading this aren't going to have access to a $500K post facility. I'm not saying that good (aka expensive) tools don't make the job easier, but Jay points out ways to get the job done for less whenever possible.

While I've got a lot of experience in broadcast, not much has been in film, and this book has helped me a great deal to expand my market. If you're into this sort of thing, you should definitely buy a copy. Brian Gilbert, [...]

2.0 out of 5 stars No CD with kindle version Jan. 11 2011
By patobrn - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I bought the kindle version of this book, AUDIO POST PRODUCTION FOR FILM AND VIDEO. The book supposedly comes with an audio CD - very important, since this is a book about audio - but I can't find a link to download this CD anywhere in the kindle version of the book!!!

I feel extremely cheated as there is so much reference to the CD in the text.
