Sound books for newbie

Hey all,

Personally I am not much of a sound person, I know some. My roommate wants to get into production sound and I would like to teach him, but cant.

Could you awesome sound geeks out there recommend some good books for introduction to production sound? I would really like to get him into the industry because he is stuck in a dead end job right now.
He knows the basics about sound, but nothing about production equipment and setup of sound for production.

I'd recommend Location Audio Simplified by S. Dean Miles @

It doesn't get very deep, but for those that are learning audio for video it will definately do the trick.

I'll second Jeffrey's recommendation of 'Location Audio...' Some other very valuable resources are both of Jay Rose's books "Producing Great Sound for Digital Video" and "Audio Postproduction for Digital Video." Another excellent book is Thomlinson Holman's "Sound for Digital Video." And finally, our own Ty Ford has an excellent little book, his "Audio Bookcamp" that is a great pocket reference.
Good news, Cousins! This week's chocolate ration is 15 grams!
