Being new to recording, I wondered which microphone type would best suit my needs, the differences between them and how best to use them.
The book is double ended - English one end, German the other. I found it interesting & informative and found the history fascinating. It covers microphone types, how to understand technical specs, pick up patterns, pre-amps and acoustics with practial tips on about each. It presents the subject in a simple and un-complicated way and talks about recording specific instruments (I only reas the relevant bits of this.
Overall an informative book, but a little expensive.
