Swain's book is one of the most focused and practical guides to building a coherent story I've read. It's a true classic and the secret sauce of many great stories. If you love to tell stories, do yourself a big favor. Buy Swain's book before you put pen to paper (or finger to keyboard)


There are many books about creating great mixes, but this one is unique. It's filled with practical tips but more about the concepts and ways to listen to mixes. It rises above the technical details of mixing and instead discusses how to hear a mix, use your ears to set compression and EQ, and follow your taste to create powerful and profound listening mixes. This is an exceptional book and a must for anyone interested in this wonderful, elusive art form.


 For the Beatles fan in your life or heart, an insider book about some of the greatest songs ever recorded. It was a total blast. If you're a producer, this is a classic textbook on creativity in the recording studio and the process of making songs. If you're a fan, you won't be able to put this book down. From Revolver to Abbey Road, Emerick was on the desk for all of it.  A treasure.


This book is always on my writing desk. In the grand tradition of Strunk and White's Elements of Style, Paul Argentini presents an essential reference masterpiece in screenwriting. He provides clear and concise principles of screenplay formatting structure and stylistic advice. If you're serious about writing screenplays, get this.
