    I bought the book a couple of weeks and enjoyed reading it. It was very detailed about hiphop in general. I learned a lot about the history in the beginning. The middle was the good part that I was looking for. It told about aspects of sampling and also a few tips hear and there. I didnt learn as much as I thought I would, but thats probably because I know more than I thought. The end about the business part was very detailed and I read through it in bits and pieces because I'm not too concerned with getting placement or shopping my beats right now. I'd rather just keep doing what Im doing. I would definitively recommend it to the hiphop impaired but if you've been doing it for a while, you will probably be getting more of an entertainment read.

        It took me a couple of weeks because I could only read it when I had time. Plus once I got toward the middle it was a hassle read. It started talking about contracts, clearing samples, etc.. I was more interested in reading about sampling (how to). I thought it would have more about eqing, filtering, ducking, and other technical aspects of beatmaking. It was more of a history read with some stuff sprinkled in.

          I started reading this book with the 4th edition and I read it a few times through and I loved that book and the 5th is even better and I have noticed that as I grow and progress with my beat making skills I find that more and more of the book makes since and I constantly look through it and just read. I keep it in my backpack at all times I pull it out on a break or if I get to school early and just read that shit. The book is very inspiring and makes me just want to go home and make beats. The processes described in their are beautifully articulated and there is no other book out there like this that offers so much insight and knowledge about the process of making beats. I loved the history section too though because it cleared up a bunch of stuff that I had previously read and heard about hip hop history and I think that section of the book is absolutely critical and invaluable to someone who makes hip hop music.

            That's dope. I felt the same way. There are a lot of details in the book that I think everyone who claims to know the history of hip hop, should read.

              I keep mine in my backpack as well and also am rereading it. The process for making tracks wasnt really described as in-depth as I thought with the exception of drum patterns.
