The book is conceived as a practical, concise guide to the collection, processing and management of linguistic field data. It also contains a certain amount of methodological considerations relating to selected areas of linguistics, the particular demands of speech recordings, and the analysis, storage and sharing of speech material. […] The authors take into account such factors as the profile of the explored community, legal 
regulations, and good practices. They share the skills, experience and observations gathered over twenty years with the entire community of interested researchers. […] The book is highly recommended for students of linguistics as well as lecturers offering classes in linguistics (including phonetics). Experienced field linguists will also find here discussion on many salient issues, as well as practical hints.
