Pardon my naivete, but what does "redbook" mean?

I'm in the market for a new CD player but I'm new to all the audiophile jargon. Is it a kind of CD or a way of judging a CD players performance? Thanks for the info
This should help. Only recently I have learned it myself. Welcome and good luck.
The original group that developed the compact disc (Sony and Phillips) had a variety of rule sets for different types of compact disc creation, use, and specifications.
The part of the compact disc specifications for commercial prerecorded compact discs was call the "Red book". Others were Orange book, etc.
The Red Book specifications are the basis for all the commercial CDs and commercial CD players on the market.
(Some of the anti-copy things violate the "redbook" rules)
So to say "Redbook" means complying with the "gold standard" of compact disc creation and playback.
Or it could mean...

Zoya and Elizabeth.....thanks for the info from a neophyte. And missed "or it could be a woman's magazine" also missed your calling at the Comedy Club....thanks for the comedy relief!
Teamnokaoi, your comments are counter-revolutionary. Loyal revolutionary guard forces would shortly be arriving at your home to take you and your family away to a "re-education camp", except that our money is worthless, and we can't even pay them with food, since our fearless leaders have consumed it all. Long live the revolution (yeah, right,...until the next tyrannical despot in the line of murderous succession!)
