    Hi Dean,

    Do you plan on releasing this as an iBook? I have the previous two and would like to buy this one, but would prefer an electronic version.

    Your books are great, btw, I constantly refer back to them to help me capture better audio.

      Sorry Gil, no plans for an iBook right now. But we are going to be releasing a Camera Audio Simplified on-line course on Vimeo in the coming months. It will be just as good as the Location Audio Simplified on-line course.
