    Based on his meticulous notes and journals, The Speed of Sound chronicles Dolby’s life in the music business during the eighties. With humour and a considerable panache for storytelling, The Speed of Sound is a revealing look behind the curtain of the music industry, as well as a unique history of technology over the past thirty years.
