The third edition incorporates a contemporary pedagogical design, offering a variety of learning aids designed to help readers understand and review basic concepts, history, and milestones in electronic music, including reader's guides and summaries at the beginning and end of each chapter, sidebars providing a unique profile of an influential individual in the field of electronic music, playlists of recommended listening covering every genre mentioned in the text, and timelines highlighting major technological andmusical innovations discussed in each chapter.
