Readers learn the technical, practical, and political aspects of the job - from customizing mixing approaches and choosing the right equipment to working with artists and other engineers - and enjoy insightful, sometimes bizarre, and always entertaining anecdotes about the climb to the big time. Author Clive Young balances his lively writing style with essential details, including complete gear lists for each featured tour, and informative sidebars that offer specific advice on how to get started and get the gig.
