At 45 pages, this is more of a pamphlet than a book. While most of the information is suitable for the audio beginner, some space is wasted on a superficial discussion of loudspeaker placement options. Indeed, it is very unfortunate that the book's back cover and preface claim to teach the reader to "design the right system for your needs." That is certainly not something that can be accomplished on such a simplistic level, and it does not occur within the covers of this book! Had it stuck to an achievable mission of meeting the legitimate needs of the novice user, this book could have had a chance of success.
This book is at its best as a familiarization manual for the components and user controls of a very small, very simple sound system. It dis-serves the reader where it reinforces the misconceptions that small-format, MI-grade speakers are useful for sound reinforcement in what are often highly reverberant spaces, that separate analog crossovers or graphic equalizers are used in modern sound systems, of that there is more than one standard for the wiring of a 3-pin XLR cable. The instructions for using a graphic EQ to ring out a microphone-speaker system branch are quite useful, but should be placed in the context that 1) loudspeaker design and mic polar pattern selection and placement are the primary means of feedback control, and 2) proper optimization of a loudspeaker system, especially a multi-way system, requires high-resolution analytical equipment and the expertise to interpret the information it displays. In other words, the reader of this book may be encouraged to go do some real damage to an existing system that has been set up in at least a partially correct manner. In general, books like this one, that don't make clear what are and are not user adjustments and equipment selection decisions, tend to create even more sound operators who "know enough to be dangerous."
