This book is probably the most technically oriented mixing book I've read, the sections on compression are fantastic, if you want a deeper understanding of how it works, the different topologies, soft knee, knee depth, etc. It also has good treatments of stereo processing, the overall mix contour, etc.
One of my favorite little bits regards the Butch Vig and Andy Wallace mixes of Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit" both of which are available on iTunes. The Butch Vig is part of the 'With the Lights out' box set. Just comparing the two versions is like a mini course in mixing!
Anybody else dig this book? I didn't mess around with the DVD, it seems the sessions are pro tools, rather than entire WAV multitracks like we use here.
