Review:

"I own an earlier edition of "The Mastering Engineers Handbook". It's been extremely valuable to me over the years. I learned a lot the first time I read it, and use it as a "Reset" button." Dave Heidt "I must thank you for writing the two books "The Mixing Engineer's Handbook" and its new counter part "The Mastering engineer's Handbook." I have found them both to be a wealth of information. Unlike many books they do not leave you gasping for breath as you struggle to understand and decipher the terminology. They are well thought out and a pleasure to read time and time again. I am enjoying immensely trying out all the tips and tricks described in the books. They can only but further my education in these matters. Again I thank you." John De Carteret "I just wanted to say thanks for your work. Straight to the point, and it doesn't drag on. Perfect. I've learned lots from it." Jared Gardner "I recommend it to everyone." Steve Brady I just wanted to write and tell you how much I enjoyed your "Mastering Engineer's Handbook". Very well written and informative. Keep it up!" Thomas Johansson Criteria Mastering "I just finished the mastering engineers handbook and wanted to let you know I appreciate the information it presented." Jay-J "Great job on the book!" Brad Blackwood Mastering Engineer Ardent Studios
