"The best overall technical introduction to film sound...As one would expect from the developer of the THX Sound System, among many other achievements, this book has a comprehensive approach and features one of the best introductions to psychoacoustics that you'll read anywhere."--Larry Blake, Mix Magazine

"The book provides a fascinating and incredibly informative introduction to the world of film and television sound and is well recommended."--James Eade, Lighting and Sound International

"Holman covers a lot of ground in just over 250 pages. His knowledge of the subject and many of the major industry players is evident. Sound for Film and Television is a concise, informative, entertaining, and intimate review that can serve as an introduction to the subject for the student and a snapshot of current techniques and processes for the practitioner."--The Journal of the Audio Engineering Society
