Ok, so I picked up the book noted in the thread title in a bookstore, because it was there, and only about eight bucks. It's from 1991, so I know it's outdated, but the writing style was very nice, and I figured I could learn about any newer language features without too much trouble after learning the basics.
However, I'm noticing in the contents now that this book, for instance, as far as I can see, doesn't seem to tell about working with audio I/O. There's nothing special about audio I/O, except that I thought of it, and decided to check if it was in the book, and it wasn't.
So what I'm asking is, if anybody knows, is this book good, or did I waste my money?
Of course I'm just going off the contents here, but it seems like there's quite a lot of writing (nearly 650 pages) about not so much information. Maybe I'm wrong.
Anyway, does anyone have any thoughts?
