Editorial Reviews


Pittsburgh Music Magazine

"Mark Workman lays out such a comprehensive strategy to becoming a working tour manager that if one has the will, Workman provides the way. Add to that Workman's writing style that is very smooth, humorous at times, and easy to understand, and you have one hell of a how to guide...it's that good. If you want to get into the music business, are in the music business already, or are like me, and just fascinated with the music business, you will find this to be a treasured find."

Chuck Billy, Testament

"A witty and inspiring power punch."

Examiner.com 10/26/13

"What makes this book valuable is that Workman has limited his war stories in favor of practical advice, things that an aspiring tour manager needs to know. The advice in his book is universal. It applies to Shania Twain, to Justin Bieber to Slayer. If you are a musician, you should read the book just to know what your tour manager is doing and what he or she has to put up with."

Soundcrave Magazine 10/27/2013

"This is a must read for anyone considering getting into the tour managing business. But in my opinion this book is a "must read" for anyone who already is in the business. It is a step by step guide on how to be successful in the world of road management and touring. If there is ever a class on tour management I hope Mark Workman is the professor."

National Rock Review 11/18/2013
Itʼs a virtual treasure trove of information for current or aspiring road crew members. I cannot fathom a single nugget of information that was left out of this book. Itʼs like a graduate level course in the summer semester. Youʼre going to learn a lot and learn it fast!
