Biographie de l'auteur
Ian Sinclair was born in 1932 in Tayport, Fife, and graduated from the University of St. Andrews in 1956. In that year, he joined the English Electric Valve Co. in Chelmsford, Essex, to work on the design of specialised cathode-ray tubes, and later on small transmitting valves and TV transmitting tubes. In 1966, he became an assistant lecturer at Hornchurch Technical College, and in 1967 joined the staff of Braintree College of F.E. as a lecturer. His first book, “Understanding Electronic Components was published in 1972, and he has been writing ever since, particularly for the novice in Electronics or Computing. The interest in computing arose after seeing a Tandy TRS80 in San Francisco in 1977, and of his 204 published books, about half have been on computing topics, starting with a guide to Microsoft Basic on the TRS80 in 1979. He left teaching in 1984 to concentrate entirely on writing, and has also gained experience in computer typesetting, particularly for mathematical texts. He has recently visited Seattle to see Microsoft at work, and to remind them that he has been using Microsoft products longer than most Microsoft employees can remember. Ian Sinclair is the author of the following Made Simple books: Lotus 1-2-3- (2.4 DOS version) MS-DOS (up to version 6.22) PagePlus for Windows 3.1 Hard drives He is also the author of many other books published under our Newnes imprint.Visit Ian's website at http://website.lineone.net/~ian_sinclair

The book's main weakness is in the multiplicity of authors with different styles. This also results in some duplication between chapters 14, 15, 16, and 17 that cover different aspects of digital audio. Nevertheless the presentation of the same basic concepts from different viewpoints may help some readers better capture the essential ideas of digital signal processing.
Some of the authors appear to be British, so in their chapters the American reader will need to get accustomed to the European style in schematic diagrams. This includes small rectangles for resistors rather than zig-zag lines and the placement of the scaling abbreviation in the radix location (e.g., 1K5 rather than 1.5K).
As with any large technical book there are some typographical errors that didn't get caught, but not an inordinate number. On the plus side, I found the presentations in areas where I am most competent essentially correct. I am happy to have this added reference on my shelf. Considering the 900-page bulk, a price under $60 USD seems quite reasonable.
