This book is almost as good a deal as MP3 itself: 1,000 pages of up-to-the-minute MP3 help, for less than 20 bucks!
It's all here, from the underlying technology to the step-by-step how-tos. You'll find a solid hardware primer on MP3 and digital audio -- what equipment you need, whether you need a new computer or sound card, and so forth. Guy Hart-Davis and Rhonda Holmes show you how to find digital music online, from Napster to newsgroups to streaming Internet radio. The book includes extensive platform-specific MP3 coverage for Windows, Mac, and Linux users, covering players, rippers, encoders, and jukeboxes.
You'll learn how to pick a portable MP3 player; how to publish, promote, and broadcast your own music on the Web, and all you need to know about CD burning. There's a technical chapter on working with MP3 files (including hard-to-find information on editing ID3 tags, renaming batches of funkily named MP3 files, repairing "cooked" MP3 files, and more. Whether you want to create your own personal WinAmp skin or create a home audio server, it's in here. MP3 Complete is appropriately named. (Bill Camarda)
