It gives a lot of information but the grammar needs a lot of work. It was so bad that it made it too distracting to bother trying to finish the book.

Music and Business. Without getting too philosophical here, it seems to be as if two inherently different worlds collide. I am a guitarist and I am a business owner. Thankfully, in my case the two have nothing to do with each other. As a guitar player I know for a fact that most fellow musicians have absolutely no sense for business in general. Some of them don't care because they are what is referred to as "bedroom players" with no ambition to make a living with performing. But the vast majority of them does actually want or need to be successful in order to get by, or even more seriously, support their family. That's when the separation of arts and business inevitably has to come to a stop. It turns into a matter of survival and it requires a change in the musician's mindset in order to actually market and sell his product.

The author of the Independent Musician's Survival Guide Shaun Letang managed elegantly to describe the criticality of selling music as regular business for those who are seriously interested in making money with their art. This requires commitment, strategy and a comprehensive roadmap. And this is exactly what the Independent Musician's Survival Guide delivers in form of easy to read and understand chapters. The reader gets profound and practical advice that can help to transform the payouts at the occasional gig in a local venue to a global business with the objective of maintaining a lucrative long-term income.

A must-read, highly recommended.
