This book is about as pointless as majoring in Sociology. Its the most obviously basic stuff that anyone with even half a working brain can figure out. Each line in this book is like a greeting card of lame industry superficial insights like "there's always a possibility that hard earned success will disappear as quickly as it materializes." (pg107) and "Every artist is only as sucessful as the most recent accomplishment." (the very next line on pg 107)
All of this would be OK, in fact I expect it in a book about the music industry. But this book is really just 250 pages of THOSE TWO LINES written in different verse and/or syntax. I think the writers of this book said to themselves "instead of writing a book about management, lets see if we can figure out how to write the same thing in more than two thousand ways." Honestly, these guys should be in the Guiness Book Of World Records, but NOT writers of a useful, helpful, artist management book.
