Amazon.com description: Product Description: You're a musician. Like most musicians these days, you write songs. And when you write a song that you're all excited about, you record it. And if you're like most musician's, you probably love the song. Which brings up a very important question. Are you happy with your productions? You can be. 
It takes many years to excel at recording, and if your goal is to become an engineer then that's what's required. But if you're a musician who just wants to garner a reaction for you song, then you don't have time for that. You need to make a Killer Record right now. But how? First, stop thinking like a recordist. 

Who am I? I'm Mixerman, a multi-platinum and gold award winning producer, mixer, and recordist. I'm also a published author, and I have a number of very popular books written on the recording arts. I was in precisely your position at the early stages of my career. I was a musician, frustrated that I could write a good song, only to feel the record itself fell short of it's potential. Over the course of my decades recording, I noticed that the performance and arrangement had a far greater impact on the sound than anything I did on the engineering side. 

The stated goal of this book is to convert recording decisions into musical ones, and technical decisions into practical ones. Not only do I explain the musical strategies for making a Killer Record, I also break the technical information down to its core so that you can strategize based on your recording reality. So long as you have what you need to make a record, I can help you make it a Killer Record. This is the only gear you'll need. 

This field manual is chock full of recording, mixing, and producing strategies designed to keep recording a fun and focused process. You will return to this manual time and time again to help you overcome any impediment-technical or musical-that might prevent you from achieving the results you seek, regardless of your recording environment, regardless of what equipment you're using, and regardless of your current skillset.

You can make a Killer Record under nearly any circumstance. It just requires the right mindset.
