advice on everything from mics to mixing to coaching
a nervous singer, producers interviewed include Arif

Brian Cottrill say's:
is one of the best recording books I've ever found.
Great interviews with most of the world's top record
producers and engineers. Anyone on any will learn and
be entertained by this book. It gives insight into recording,
mixing and the music business. I don't read many books
and I never read them twice. I'm in the middle of reading
this book for the third time. My only complaint is that
some heros are left out (Jimmy Iovine, T-Bone Burnett,
Chris Thomas), but it's still incredible how many star
producers and engineers are here!
Reviewer: Jorge Oter say's:
booked is really packed with insight from the best people
in the business. What surprised me the most is the sheer
amount of knowledge: unlike similar books (like "The
Mixing Engineer's Handbook"), it's printed in "smallish"
type (i.e. like a novel) and the page margins are "normal"
too, so you really get your 328 pages of useful information.
The interviews are also very entertaining, with very
intelligent questions and answers. It's the closest
you will be to having a face-to-face chat with the likes
of George Martin and Brian Wilson. The amount of interviews
is staggering too. If you are thinking of buying this
book - you really can't live without it!
Reviewer: A reader from Brazil say's:
every other book. This is the only you'll ever need.
