Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Very well written and a must read for every young person thinking about entering the music business, from performer, to writer, to producer, to manager, to distributor. The book is full of great advice, in an easy to read format that can serve as a ready-reference for any applicable business dealings or considerations. I have given a couple of these books out as gifts and the feedback from the recipients remains positive!!!

This book was more than an advice book on the music industry. It really broke down business concepts and explained the reason behind a lot of things that I did not know.

This book is a great read for people trying to branch into the music industry. Hate that Amazon makes you write a certain amount of words.

This book should be a must ready for anyone intending to monetize from music. The book is loaded with information plus real life experience.
