1.0 out of 5 stars I WANT MY MONEY BACK!!!! April 2, 2013
This book very much does not tell you how to start your own publishing company. The title is very misleading. This is a scam and I want my money back.

The book contains absolutely no useful information. The author's business advice is as basic and as worthless as "pick a business name", and "set up an online domain."

Wasting a very large part of the book talking about record label contracts (which has nothing to do with the promise made by the books title) and royalties, the book says nothing at all about how to solicit the music you own, and generate the actual "business" required to validate your business. NBC, Coke, McDonalds, etc. need songs for commercials. Daily these "want ads" go out and Publishing/Licensing companies receive them. To REALLY be able to start a publishing company, you will need access to these "want ads". This book makes no mention of them. It actually makes no reference at all as to what you are supposed to do with the songs once you aquire them. The only scenario discussed in this book is based on the idea that you will get a big name artist to perform the songs. How exactly do you do that? The book doesn't tell you. Ninety percent of the publishing business involves TV, Film, Video Games, etc, and none of this is mentioned in this book.

My favorite waste of time was Chapter 3 "Securing membership of performing and mechanical societies." What the title of this chapter means is simply, you should join ASCAP, or BMI, or SESAC, or any of the others. The author takes an entire chapter to say nothing more than, pick one and fill out their application.

This book did not tell me anything I did not already know.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Information December 26, 2012

I'm in the process of starting my own music publishing company and I found the material in this book very current and relevant. I've read many books on music publishing and I'd recommend this to anyone starting their own business in music publishing. It's an easy read and not full or complex legal jargon that a lot of other music publishing books are. It has easy to follow action steps to take when starting up.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant January 6, 2013
This was a gift for Christmas from my husband along with a book on how to copyright my own music as writing music is one of my interests. This book was one of the best presents i received this year, it was very well written and easy to understand and follow. I would recommend this book.
