I asked a question about capturing audio sessions from other processes and found what I need is not available from the windows API and I may need to end up writing drivers to do what I want to do.

I am hoping to find a book that goes in to depth in to the windows sound-system like Windows Internals does for other windows parts (From what I can tell from the chapter headings Windows Internals does not, but I have not bought the book yet. I do not have the money to buy that book and some other book that would be on topic, and the local Library does not carry it).

I don't know if I need to write a driver, that is why I was hoping to find a book to learn more.

I know book recommendations are not on topic, so what can I ask to to help me find a new resource to learn the windows sound system in depth (deeper than what the MSDN provides) without asking for a book recommendation?

Have you considered searching Amazon.com for Windows Internals? I can't promise you'll find what you need, but some hits look at least interesting... and some have a decent number of ratings/reviews, as well. – Pëkka Feb 11 '13 at 15:26

You could go to chat where discussions and recommendations are on topic.

Barring that, you'll need to go to another site in which getting a book recommendation is on topic. SO isn't intended to be the only programming related resource on the entire web.
