Format: Paperback
This is a bunch of 'scripted interviews' with industry folk. It's like reading depositions. Changes in the music business since the digital-age can be found online, for free, for those who are so inclined.

Pluses: Interviews, real-world knowledge of the ins and outs of the music business, how to make it big, promote yourself, sell music online.

Minuses: Some recent developments are a bit dated, but still good information. Focuses a lot on legal issues, copyright law, court cases that pit the big music labels and RIAA against those who threaten the status quo.

Overall, a good summary of the business environment and challenges (and opportunities) for music professionals in the current day.

Great resource for any musician or indie band entering the recording and/or performing arts industry.The information is presented in layman's terms or defined when needed. This book is filled with valuable information that even seasoned musicians (I'm an AARP member) can use who are just starting to record and distribute music. Information on copyright law, licensing and promoting music via the web is presented in great detail. I reiterate: A great resource!
