"Putting the creativity of every single sonic nuance in the hands of the sound designer--and the listener--is the gift that Farnell brings through his book "Designing Sound". What an empowering experience!"--David Sonnenschein, Director, Musician, and Author of "Sound Design: The Expressive Power of Music, Voice and Sound Effects in Cinema"
"Andy Farnell's "Designing Sound" is a fantastic and incredibly inspiring book. With hundreds of fully working sound models, this 'living document' helps students to learn with both their eyes and their ears, and to explore what they are learning on their own computer. Perfectly balanced between theory and practice, the book will help students and professionals alike to develop and refine the skills and understanding that they require to synthesize the worlds of sounds around them and the sounds in the imagined worlds of advertising, TV, film, computer games, and their own original audio art. A great textbook, a great workbook, a great way to actually learn how to design sounds--I can't wait to use "Designing Sound" in my classes."--Richard Boulanger, Professor of Electronic Production and Design, Berklee College of Music
"An excellent, practical introduction to sound synthesis methods. The most useful resource on Pure Data that I've come across. Essential reading for anyone wanting to learn how to create sounds."--Karen Collins, Canada Research Chair in Interactive Audio, University of Waterloo
"A monumental work. This surely has the potential of becoming the sound designer's bible!"--Kees van den Doel, Scientific Computing Laboratory, University of British Columbia

To illustrate the principles needed for sound design and to conceptionalize the methods of realization of a particular sound emulation, Mr. Farnell utilizes an OpenSource programming language known as Pd (Pure Data). Designing Sound is an excellent introduction to Pd and demonstrates how basic physics principles can be turned into sonic entities.
Pd is a project related to programming sound in a similar sense that Processing is related to programming live graphics, and GEM is related to programming live video. Since all of these programming strategies are related, they can be used together (or separately) by artists with interest in live performance art or art installations.
Andy Farnell's book is well written and full of interesting problems. If you are looking for a book that will "hand hold" you through every problem you may be somewhat disappointed. On the other hand, if you are willing to use the excellent reference materials for further study, you will be rewarded.
Like another reviewer said, you will not get every single detail of every single technique or theory in this book. You will get enough to get a good idea, good examples and excellent links in the reference sections so you can go wild and study any of the ideas in the book much further by yourself.
Some of the sample code links for the MIT Press version of the book are broken. I contacted Andy Farnell directly by email about this, and he was kind enough to point to his other website which does not have this problem . I hope the MIT Press folks fix this soon, but even with the broken links, the code is available in the website in text areas, so you can cut and paste it and save it in a file and it will work, but is more tedious.
I could not recommend this book anymore. It's a great introduction into a fascinating field. As a disclaimer, I am not an audio person, but a software engineer interested in audio with a bit of DSP background from school. I imagine audio professionals might have a different experience with the book, but I can't imagine anybody calling it anything but an excellent, epic work.
