Abstract
A brief history of the evolution of the compact disc is presented. The central focus is on the development role played by the Red Book and its offspring, the Yellow Book and the Orange Book. Following the development of the disc itself came longevity claims made by manufacturers and counter claims in commercial literature. Finally, the construction of technically and statistically sound media testing methodology is traced from the early works of individuals to the refined standards representing the combined input from manufacturers, archivists and industry experts. A suggestion for further independent testing is also made.
