This is a workman's guide to understanding what is required (electronically-speaking) to be successful in the fields of audio, video and multimedia recording. The author has breaks down the information to deliver in as simple a fashion as possible the concepts, techniques, and tools you need to know to make a go of it in the abovementioned areas of employment.

At the heart of it, these are complex theories to understand and, like anything else, require years of study and practical application to learn them. Author Alden Hackmann explains in his intro,

There will be frustrating moments along the way, and you probably will make some mistakes that make the problem worse rather than making it better. This is called experience, and there isn't an electronics tech in the world who hasn't done this. Despite these moments of annoyance, or in fact because of them, the skills you learn here will lead you down the path to a better understanding of how all of this gear functions, how to care for it so that it will last longer and behave better, and what tools to buy if u want to start working more seriously on your own gear or someone else's.
The chapters are broken down to include everything from the tools you'll need and basic soldering skills to building circuits on breadboards, understanding AC voltage, the resistor code, Watt's Law, and much more. One overriding approach to this material is the minimal applications of math in tackling these subjects.

Nothing in life is easy, but having this book as your main reference source will make your electronic pursuits infinitely less complicated.
