Format: Paperback
Great book. A bit more approachable for those who like to flip through stop, and learn something vs taking a classroom adventure, perhaps than his other awesome book on succeeding in the music biz. Different animal, but also some different thoughts and there is no bad advice here. If you can only afford one music business book, this is the one, even if you're not a dummy!
