From Library Journal
The Brabecs, experienced entertainment lawyers, have written a practical, comprehensive guide about the music business for songwriters and recording artists. They pay special attention to songwriting, dealing in depth with such topics as music publishing; songwriting for motion pictures, Broadway, commercials, and television; performance rights; foreign rights; buying and selling songs; and copyright. The authors also include a section on lawyers, managers, and agents, as well as a chapter on recording artists. Useful to professionals and novices alike, this well-written book provides songwriters--and, to a lesser extent, recording artists--detailed guidance to the many complex aspects of the music business. Highly recommended for the music reference sections of all types of libraries.

musical theater, where my colleague had discovered more complex principles and formulas for computing royalties than I had seen before. Thanks, Jeff and Todd, for taking time to create this book. Okay, sure, you'll make some money with it-costs thirty bucks, for heaven's sake. But still, getting these concepts out of your heads and onto our desks is a major service. While the value of this material is obvious to anyone involved with licensing or contracts, it can be equally helpful as a university text. Consider it for honors work in music business, or for independent readings projects. Now that the book has been around a few years, it has found its way into the libraries of many star-level artists and songwriters, who regularly sing its praises to anyone who will listen. Ron Simpson, School of Music, Brigham Young University. Author of MASTERING THE MUSIC BUSINESS.
Completely lacking any vague ambiguities regarding the often "mysterious" inner workings of the music industry, the Brabec brothers have clearly defined realistic expectations for those entering the music world from any angle. Straightforward and to-the-point explanations of just about every aspect of the business, especially on the publishing side of things, render this book an essential part of any student or songwriter's library.
Also great for the the vaguely curious, this text is a steal at any price!
--Walt Goodridge, President Hip Hop Entrepreneur Association (Walt is also author of Rap: This Game of Exposure and, The Game of Artist Management, The Hip Hop Entrepreneur Lists of Exposure, The Niche Market Report, and other success tools for the Hip Hop Entrepreneur)
It is written in a way that all can understand.
If you have an interest in the Music business this book will explain how to make money with music and leave no question unanswered.
It is a great reference tool!
Congratulations Jeff & Todd Brabec. You have written a great book.
