In his first book, Desktop Mastering, Steve Turnidge unveiled his unique approach to mastering in the box, all the while providing glimpses of his mind-set and resulting workflow.

Now, in Beyond Mastering, Turnidge pulls back the veil to give a tour of the physics and philosophy driving the mastering engineer, and the internal state required for happiness and success.

By definition, universal truths can be expressed in any medium. In this book, these truths are revealed through the art of mastering, building on the step-by-step methods explained in Desktop Mastering, related in well-developed metaphor and analogy.

Beyond Mastering is full of guiding principles gained from Turnidge's more than 25 years at the forefront of art and technology.
