Format: Paperback
This book has it all. A step-by-step guide to making money as a local musician. He emphasizes the fact that getting a record deal is not necessarily the best thing for a group or solo artist. He says that, although it can be done successfully, it is better to stay local so you will always have a fan base. I find it refreshing to see a book that is more realistic and less fantastic.

A great guide by James W. Dearing dealing with issues that concern entry and survival in the music world, with good structure and easy to read language. Most of the information in here is based on real life experiences ant theory is kept to the minimum. This book will teach you how to make money fast without hassle, hot to keep your profits from decreasing and how to start your fortune from scratch. So if you want to make your living by making music and you don't know anything about that, then this is the best title for you.Recommended for all the novices out there

This book collects a lot of practical advice that you might have considered on your own, but weren't able to put together in one place. It's a little like an extended business for a single musician, although a lot of it concerns working with others in bands, too. There are also many fine and valuable details learned from the author's experience. Where it falls short, in my opinion, regarding bands, is how to make the leap from low-wage bar gigs (for instance) to higher-wage jobs. There is plenty of advice regarding how to boost professionalism, and to fill up your time earning a nickel here and a dime there, but not enough, in my opinion, about the networking and politicking apparently necessary to gain access to the world of higher-wage jobs. Of course, much of the author's advice might be classed as subjective as well as objective, so your own judgment will need to come into play as you digest the material. An interesting note: there is some parroted disinformation (originating from special interests) regarding certain health hazards to musicians that careful research shows is false. But that kind of thing is common regarding almost all writing that touches upon health, political, religious, philosophical, economic, etc. issues.
