Between the hobbyist and the engineer, the amateur and the professional, the casual experimenter and the serious product designer there exists a chaotic space filled with Laplace transforms, Fourier analysis, complex calculus, Maxwell's equations, solid-state physics, wave mechanics, holes, electrons, about four miles of effete mysticism, and, maybe, one inch of compassion. This audio handbook attempts to disperse some of the mist. Its contents cover many of the multidimensional fields of audio, with emphasis placed on intuition rather than rigor, favoring the practical over the theoretical. Each area is treated at the minimum depth felt necessary for adequate comprehension. Mathematics is not avoided - only reserved for just those areas demanding it. Some areas are more "cookbook" than others, the choice being dictated by the material and Mother Nature.
