1.0 out of 5 stars not accurate enough too glossy
What I hate about these music books is that they never give you the full story about how the music industry works.

There is a lot of selection process, politics and game playing that musicians need to know about and there is only one book that covers all of this and many more topics it is why I prefer...

5.0 out of 5 stars Invaluable, 10 Aug. 2011
This review is from: All You Need To Know About The Music Business: seventh edition (Paperback)
I am only half way through this book and the amount of knowledge I have acquired is unbelievable. This is a must read for everyone who wants to get basic and extended knowledge in the music business. You also have the option of reading it in different ways as the author mentions in the beginning of the book. I manage bands for a living and this helped me grasp a few concepts that I have had a few difficulties with. Artists are the main concern in this book, but anyone who wants to understand how things work should give it a try. All in all it's money well spent. Buy it, read it, use the knowledge, become better at whatever you do in the music world.

This review is from: All You Need To Know About The Music Business: seventh edition (Paperback)
The perfect book for those who don't know much about the music industry but want to learn the basics. Everything is brilliantly explained, relevant to the industry and surprisingly easy to understand.

This review is from: All You Need To Know About The Music Business: seventh edition (Paperback)
This book covers the broad spectrum of things you need to know when jumping into the shark-infested waters of the Music Industry and it is useful, but bear in mind this is written about the Music Industry in America and there will be some differences with regard to the UK market. Nevertheless it is edifying and worth a read.

I have only just started, but this book is highly informative, with a fun slant garnered from years in the wonderful but weird business which is music. Fully recommended.

Considering the fact that I'm analysing the music industry for my thesis, this product was really useful. Hard to find definitions though.
