The author of Zen and the Art of Producing is a recognized mixer, engineer and producer who has worked with Ben Harper, Matt Nathanson, Barenaked Ladies, Amy Grant, Lifehouse and Hilary Duff. He is also a popular blogger on the Womb Forums and hosts a radio show called Mixerman Radio. He has taken those elements and presented them here in the companion volume to Zen and the Art of Mixing.

In this collection, he addresses the many facets of record production, including descriptions of the various types of producers--musician producer, engineer producer and music fan producer--as well as the mechanics, politics and nusiness of producing. His approach to these elements--as the title suggests--is a bit more earthy and soulful, but he does get into the nuts-and-bolts of what is required to venture into the production arena, including good ears, knowledge of music theory, and a true grasp of the music business.

This is a useful book and filled with practical information. Chances are you're aren't going to read it and then run out and produce the next No Doubt record, but it is a place to start and sharpen your skills.
