In today's music world men still dominate the corporate corridors of most major labels. The good news is that the increased affordability of recording equipment has created alternate roads to achievement; and with the help of Diane Rapaport's book, women can take control of their own career destiny. Thorough guidelines are included here, not only for production and manufacturing, but also marketing formulas that can be tailored to target women's music audiences. In covering every detail, Diane expresses that fledgling producers will wear many hats. The inspiration lies in examples of success such as Olivia Records (190) and Redwood, two women's music labels that went from humble beginnings to national acclaim. In her words, "the soul of recording is the love of music and the desire to share it." This book is a must read for women serious about developing their talent and reaching that sought-after audience. -- From The WomanSource Catalog & Review: Tools for Connecting the Community for Women; review by Lenore Troia
