Throughout the book you see Scott evolve as a person, from non-traditional high school kid to the encouraging leader he is today. Scott shares insights and lessons learned...many of which were learned the hard way. Nevertheless, despite many challenges and setbacks, Scott exhibits incredible tenacity and commitment to overcome obstacles and attain his goal: the creation of an outstanding community of musicians who encourage and support each other while delivering incredible renditions of popular music.
I could recommend this book for:
1) Teachers. All educators have experienced the student who doesn’t fit the traditional mold. Scott provides insight into the potential within those students.
2) People with highly creative minds. The creative process and need for balance and recharge are all explored as well as interacting with a variety of personality types.
3) Leaders. Any organizational leader could benefit from Scott’s eventual perspective wherein a leader encourages her/his team to grow and develop their unique skills and strengths, making them stronger individuals and more valuable contributors to the group.
4) Fans of PMJ and all the unique personalities that highlight the group. C’mon, this book should be required reading for anyone who appreciates the creative approach to music that is Scott Bradley’s Postmodern Jukebox.
For all the artistic and business parables found in Outside The Jukebox, at its core is a story about finding your voice, perserving, and not losing sight of yourself. Everything old is new again.
P.S. I love that he’s managed by 1/2 of the guys who sang “Crazy For This Girl.”
