It's About 

How audio and video stuff works.   
How to implement how it works.
How to sell it.
How to manage the business.   
How to save the world from poor fidelity.

Blind Luck 

It takes more than blind luck to save the world from poor fidelity.  It takes a dedication to the science and art of audio/video reproduction.  Therefore, the Handbook centers on introductory physics, technology, and empirical experience.  Business subjects are withheld until the last two chapters.


Step Up To The Plate

If you're a veteran AV pro approach this website as your AV batting practice cage. It works for baseball as rehearsals for music.  If you're an AV rookie, use this site as a primer to catch up with colleagues and the competition.
