    Default DJ Books!?!?

    Basically i've decided I want to read a few books on the subject we all are in love with ^.^

    Can anyone recommend some good books to read???

    I'm looking for a book that really has it everything. Mixing, Theory and History. I want to spice what I can already do, learn new things and I mean I don't mind reading!!

    Don't be hesitant to name more than one

    i'd recommend this as its a proper guide not just a technical how to and also has a bit of interesting history in it too although it was a while ago when i read it

    And for a complete and interesting history rather than a how to etc

    This is a fantastic read but beware it has pretty much everything in it so takes some tim e to read. Its also been out while now

    Written by a couple of friends of mine, so guess I'm biased, but it is a great guide to all aspects of DJ culture with interviews with 100s of the worlds best DJs'.

    I read that when I first got into DJing around 2002.... Great book. I should dig out my copy and see how relevant it is still. It was a different era back then.

    EDIT: Oh I see they've updated it. How much new stuff is in there?
