Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende
Quincy Jones is one of the most famous record producers in the world. His work has repeatedly crossed and unified the boundaries of jazz, soul, and pop - from era-defining jazz projects and unique contemporary film scores to his legendary work with Michael Jackson, including the original We Are the World benefit recording and its 21st-century sequel. Bill Gibson is the author of over 30 books and videos, including the six-volume Hal Leonard Recording Method. He is a longtime producer, engineer, and teacher and has recorded multiple albums. He is an instructor for Berklee Online, a member of the Audio Engineering Society and the Society of Broadcast Engineers, and a voting member of the Recording Academy.

It is set up in bite-sized pieces perfect for a coffee table. However, aside for some inspirational advice from Q, there isn't much reason to take this book into the studio with you.
That said, I was very excited to see this new book (which is apparently part 1 of a trilogy), and to see the man out promoting it - despite the fact that he said they "forced him into it". I was also excited to see it published by a music publisher, Hal Leonard, because it meant (well, I thought it did, anyway...) that it would be hopefully be an informative "industry" book for musicians, producers, songwriters, and not just another biography.
Sadly, the book is put together very sloppily. Misspellings, line errors - everywhere. Just gives you the impression that Gibson put this together with haste. And that's just the surface - the book lacks SERIOUSLY in coherence, it's jumping all over the place. Most "paragraphs" - they're anecdotes, to be honest - are titled misleadingly, and often have nothing to do with the content thereafter. The REASON for this, I'm guessing, is the fact that Gibson based it on interviews he conducted with Q, they didn't set out to write this book together - and it's that "stream of consciousness" you definitely do sense from reading this book. It could've REALLY benefitted from better (or any?) editing.
The book is divided into a few sections - the first one is supposed to be a background story of sorts, the rest of the book is devoted into letting Q talk about his famous productions and his famous crew of Los Angeles co-workers (the musicians, songwriters, engineers), and finally, let them and other Q's friends talk about the man.
I was a bit disappointed, that it doesn't quite deliver the promise of its title...for instance, Q doesn't really talk in TOO much detail about the famous recording sessions like, say, Bruce Swedien does in his book(s). For example, the section on "Bad" (1987) is just a few paragraphs over a couple of pages. There's also a lot of "you have to go to Soweto and meet the street kids to make most of those 12 notes, which come from God anyway" high & mighty speak, which is fine...for a little while. I would've hoped for something more concrete.
I'm hoping the next two books in the series will improve on this. Perhaps this was meant as just an "introductory" book into the man and his thoughts.
On the plus side, it's a thick book (300 pages) and obviously peppered with legendary stories and anecdotes from Q, spanning his entire career - some of which aren't in his (superb) autobiography. It's also nice to hear from key collaborators, like master pop songwriter Rod Temperton for a change. And as an idea for a book series, it's a great one, and was certainly due.
If you want to buy a book that you'll learn something about recording and producing from, get the Bruce Swedien instead. It's just as full of typos and errors as this book, but at least I learned something about how to make a better record. It actually has more insight on being a good producer than this one does.
