1.0 out of 5 stars Not a lot of cop 16 Oct 2001
By A Customer
I bought this book in November 2000 when I had decided to start my own Independent Label. Unfortunately for me I couldn't then and still now can't find any particular use for this book other than a dust collector. It is very much geared towards the USA, which is something that I already knew before purchasing, but I felt that there would be aspects of information that would assist me... I was wrong. I don't feel that the USA market is THAT different anyway, therefore steer clear of this book.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't buy this book! 10 May 2001
By A Customer
Do not buy this book. I bought it assuming that I would at least get an overview, but I learned nothing. The author was a schoolteacher turned MC and label owner ("the rappin teach" as she often refers to herself), and I'm happy that everything worked out with her label, but she has a fundamental lack of understanding about music itself let alone the music industry. Almost everything she tells you either you knew before you picked up the book, or completely obvious, regardless of your background in music. DO NOT BUY THIS BOOK.

1.0 out of 5 stars Very repetitive 5 Nov 2000
By A Customer
First of all, If you live outside of the USA, don't bother, as you will find yourself reading information on american companies that offer their services and read all about american law. (She must have made a mint through the amount of advertising in this book). 282 pages (very large font size) of repetitive information that is very vague. She describes the process of shooting a video over one page, for example!! It gives a general oversight of the music industry, but anyone with half a brain cell, and an internet connection, could find this information for free... The book is full of spelling mistakes and bad grammer (excuse mine) and is overall, a waste of anyones money. Mine is now burnt to ashes.

3.0 out of 5 stars OK but aimed more at American start-ups. 26 Jun 2011
By Carlos
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A useful reference work with a good amount of interviews. Having said that, I don't find myself going to this book that often. It is (as these books tend to be) largely associated with the American industry which, for Brits like me isn't an awful lot of use right now.

Nevertheless, it's worth a flick through for some ideas, advice etc.
