DJ Handbook

Charles Slaney, The DJ Handbook, 2nd Edition,  PC Publishing

This is a great little book. It covers technical plus some social aspects of becoming and being a DJ. Charles Slaney looks first of all at just what a DJ is, then the biz part, and then onto various technical aspects including equipment and technique. Along the way he looks at room accoustics and even includes pictures of various connectors while talking about their use.

You'll also learn how to set up the balance of a mixer and amps and the very basis of sound. Quite a lot is packed into the 109 pages (incl index) that makes up the book.

The whole story is lucidly and sometimes entertainingly told. If you're interested in DJing, this is the best book we've seen on the topic.
