Format: Paperback
The format of this book is not "10 quick things you can do". It is mostly a discussion, from different people, attacking different subjets. It is not uniform. There is a lot of repetition. However, being a lawyer, I find that it is a good start for people who have little concept of technical aspects of the art market.

Format: Paperback
This is the best book I've come across in my reading and researching on business topics for artists. No book is perfect, the be all end all, magic trick to make you famous and successful and no book can be. You have to do the work and this book is a perfect guide.

I found the chapter on Estate and Gift Planning very helpful and entertaining with stories and examples of famous artists who's estates almost wound up in disaster because of their shoddy estate planning - it also goes into Gift Tax planning and your art as taxable valuable property and why.

The chapter on Copyright was right on target. This is a comprehensive subject and admittedly this book was written in the late 90's before artists were really considering the internet a serious issue but the laws still apply.

Such a valuable book. Read it cover to cover and use it as a reference as well.

Format: Paperback
This book has a variety of information. Some info seems to be for the emerging artist, other info is for the more established artist. It's a good reference but I'd suggest other business of art books first.

Format: Paperback
Some great information hidden in a bunch of rambling useless information. I wish someone would write a book that you don't have to search for the information you need. Alot of filler.
