Format: Paperback
Hi ,
I bought this book to get an idea of how managers get their acts into the big time and keep them there . I am very glad that I chose this one . It paints a very clear picture of managers working behind the scenes and how they get things done in order to make loads of money. I found the book easy to follow , very informative and full of fascinating facts that I didn't know about.
It is written by someone who was in the industry so you get like an insiders perspective on how it all happens ,which is cool and authentic as well .I hope you enjoy it as much as I did .

This book is full of great rock and roll stories and history, and a must have for anyone who was born to late to live it up in the 1970"s!!! Great for others interested in the business side of rock and roll, this book drops major science on what it takes to work an artist you really believe in! (Teddy Heavens)
