I suppose that since I was confused just by the description of this book on the back, I probably shouldn't have bought it. But I did. I have a limited background in computer music, and had heard all about Csound and how great it was, and wanted to give it a shot. I had the Csound Reference Manual, which was not helpful at all, so I thought a book like this would be good to buy.
I would like to warn people that if you are looking to learn computer music on your own, this is not the book to start with. To really be able to use the book, you need to be very familiar with how computer music works, and with the major sound synthesis methods. I should add, too, that if you don't know much about computer music in the first place, Csound probably isn't the best choice for a program to learn it on. I was hoping for an organized introduction to Csound that would take me step by step through learning it, and that is not what this book is. To me, as a beginner, it's just a bunch of scattered information. And the CD's are confusing, as well. I had a hard time just finding the files to use for the first tutorial. Several of the example instruments require sound files that aren't even included in the same folder as the instrument's score and orchestra files.
Overall, to me, the book is a confusing, overwhelming mish-most of information that I mostly don't understand. Unfortunately, I can't return it because I opened the CD. If you are an experienced computer musician with some experience in Csound, or if you have a teacher to help you, this book would be great as it is full of excellent resources. But it's NOT for the novice computer musician! I should have gone through it more carefully before blowing my $55, so don't make the same mistake I did!

First, I have to admit I'm one of the contributors to the book. However, I'll make every effort to provide an unbiased review to help you decide if the book is for you.
For those who don't know, Csound is a software synthesizer written by Barry Vercoe in the 1980s that continues to be used by mostly university-based composers of electronic music and computer music. Lately, because today's ordinary personal computers are more powerful than the mainframes used by the pioneers of computer music and come with decent sound cards, and also due to the spread of software synthesis into popular music with techno and electronica, independent composers and even some more pop-based musicians are beginning to use Csound.
I find that the book is an enormously useful resource for computer musicians, even though the material is sometimes repetitive and is of uneven quality. With about 50 contributors, sometimes more than one person covers the same ground. Probably a sizeable chunk of the people seriously using Csound contributed to the book!
Csound is one of the most powerful software synthesizer in existence (it is unquestionably the most powerful one that costs nothing!), and that makes it one of the most powerful musical instruments in history. However, it's not a physical object but a computer program, and in fact it's not even a finished program, it's a programming language. So, it's hard to use Csound, and even harder to get started.
Not surprisingly, one of the main purposes of the Csound book is to explain how to program Csound. I find that the book does a pretty good job of this for beginners, and there is not much competition, so if you want to learn Csound, you need this book.

I've found that the Csound book provides more than just a way to learn Csound but rather a way to expand your knowledge in computer music as a whole. The basics of Csound are covered in chapter 1 of the book, which is what anyone who is new to csound should spend all of their time on until they understand how the language works. What I felt that the majority of the book and CDROM focused on were principles of computer musis such as synthesis, composition and performance, using Csound as the medium. It is much more than a "how to turn the knob" tutorial. I found this book to be a wonderful asset in that while learning about a particular topic, I can also render the sounds and modify each instrument at a minute level to gain a real understanding of how the principles work. If you are looking for a quick way to make analogy or other wierd sounds for the computer, this may not be the best choice, as Csound takes some time to learn. It took me quite a few weeks to get a grasp on what Csound was doing and how it works. The book does provide the easiest way to learn Csound, though Csound is by no means simple. It took me quite a few weeks to get a grasp on what Csound was doing and how it works, But once one starts to get a grasp on the language, the other chapters provide a lifetime of synthesis to explore.

I have been subscribed to the csound mailing (on and off) list for 4 years now. All the topic of the book have been discussed at full length and sometimes even more thouroghly on the mailing list. This book was awaited for 2 years now and most of us thought it would never see the light. I am not impressed, Boulanger chapter, the main tutorial, is all over the place, it might waste time explaining what an envelope is and just fly over the FOSCIL oscillator, i.e. you cannot read this book away from your computer (you will need the reference to CSOUND which is not included in the book). The other chapters do a better job, even if there is a lot of crosstalk across chapters (granular synthesis is presented in several chapters, and some repeat the same material over and over). I find remarkably clear the chapters of Ffitch about the internal workings of CSOUND.
The CD ROM. Never seen content so badly organized, half of it is a download of the CSOUND page at MIT press... the main cdrom has even the ad page for the imminent release of the book (which supposedly you are already reading). The content is layed out very badly, the navigation is atrocious. It is nice to have most of the scores rendered as audio file, however the choice of the format is unfortunate (quick time MOV) and you can hear compression artifacts in the audio samples (why not use a more down to earth MP3 which is not proprietary and it is still cross platform?)
To wrap up, this is an "advanced topics in CSOUND" and not a book for everybody. CSOUND culture is for hackers, if you're one of them you'll benefit immensely from this book.
