Editorial Reviews

Review

"By its fourth week, the diary was getting 25,000 hits a day and drawing attention from every stripe of the music business, as well as other bloggers, Internet junkies, and insiders. It was a phenomenon . . . The final chapter is here, too, for new readers, as well as the more than 140,000 Web readers who may have lost a night's sleep here or there, wondering what became of their all-too-human, less-than-gifted cast of characters." "I have never laughed so hard at any book in my life! It is such a good book that I am reading it now for the second time."

"The story has a feeling of life. A sense of reality that is all too uncommon in the world of music. It gives you a view of the real day to day pleasure and pain involved in the life of an Audio Engineer or Producer. It pulls you along at its pace, sometimes a fast shuffle, other times a slow waltz as you watch a train wreck taking place, one frame at a time." "This is a very entertaining book." "Absolutely the best book I've ever read, music wise. Funny, smart, well written."
