First Sentence
The evolution of music recording has taken a path which I would never have expected when I first became involved in this industry in the mid 1960s. Read the first page

Format: Paperback
I read this book, since the first pages I see the quality of redaction, learn and Knowledge. Phillip Newell knows about he is talking, with 30 years of experience, his comments make the diference between a amateur an a profesional enginner of Audio. All the information of this book it is based on personal and tecnical knowledge. If you are studing audio enginering, read this book to ensure your knowlege. Definitively, the best book I read . No more thin articles, no more acoustic problems, you have to buy it, read it, and your vision of the project studio, will not to be the same. It is like the BIBLE of the engineer, and a book of consult for lifetime. Values the price in gold.

The worst book on studio design ever written July 11 2005
By D. Nelson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
There is nothing technical at all in this book. If you like long boring stories about nothing that happen to take place in a studio this book is for you. Everyone else should read Master Handbook of Acoustics and Acoustic Absorbers and Diffusers: Theory, Design, and Application instead.
