David Suisman has written a thoroughly researched and much needed history of the growth of the American commercial music industry. Insightful and well written this book deserves a much wider audience than music industry professionals.

I highly recommend Selling Sounds. Gave my copy to my wife and she read it over the weekend and has already ordered a second copy as a gift for one of her managers.

Assigned for class I am taking. Very thorough but way too wordy. His writing style is very flowery. Lots of hundred dollar words. It would be half its sixe if he removed the obscure adjectives.

I am only 50 pages into the book. It is a story about how today's music happened. I am fascinated by stories of forces of commerce, and early personalities, shaping the world. I do not always like what happens, but it is always a great story. The book is very well written so far, pages just go by, and early 20th century dances in front of my eyes. But I can't tell you much yet, I am only 50 pages into it.

What I can tell you is that I regret buying the Kindle edition. It has no illustrations, there are many, and I want to see them. Musicians, records, old NYC, are cool to look at, and I can't see them. I'd have gladly spend $8 more for it. And donated the book to my local library when done. Or not, if I really, really liked it.
