This is a new edition, in paperback, of Ken Pohlmann's classic survey of the compact disc world, The Compact Disc: A Handbook of Theory and Use, and celebrates the tenth birthday of possibly the most successful consumer electronics product ever introduced. The phenomenal success of the compact disc - currently over a billion copies are sold each year - has encouraged rapid development of compact disc technology and spawned entirely new applications for it. The text of this new edition has been thoroughly overhauled to take note of all these developments; in addition there is more information on the laboratory origins of the compact disc and the principles underlying the format. It remains a comprehensive and authoritative handbook by an acknowledged expert on digital audio and related topics.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Here is an interesting, timely, well-written book in which everything you ever wanted to know about the compact disk and more is explained. In summary, this is a good book. It's written in plain English. It's clear that the author enjoys his subject and knows how to teach and to write. I recommend it if you are interested in the technical aspects of CDs, or even if you just enjoy good technical storytelling. * Computer Music Journal *
compelling and fascinating reading, written by an expert with the knack of making complex explanations understandable. * Image Technology *
