5.0 out of 5 stars A Musicians Guide to Surviving the Great Recession: Practical Tips for Living a Truly Better Life in a Precarious Economy, 7 April 2013
This book pans out like a gig well it was written by A Musician. With a ROCKY start its hard hitting, pulls no punches naming names BACKED by some shocking facts and stats. This is then ACCOMPANIED by good advice MIXED with the authors cutting wit and language as colourful as his stage lights. Then as good musicians do he slows the pace with the poignant TALE or should I say TAIL of how his best friend helped him with his financial woes. This sets the trend for a totally remarkable book by a remarkable talented musician whose material does not stop for a half time break. A book not to be missed . A MUST READ and at the end after bucket loads of advice, a high five star performance and a standing ovation He could of subtitled this book A Book For Grownups.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best advice you can get for £8.96!, 18 Jan 2013

P. Phillips (South Wales, UK) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
Short (I read it in about 2 hours on the train) and funny book about how you can take life lessons from musicians on dealing with the financial crunch, and how you can learn from some of the great modern swindlers (well mainly Donald Trump - he clearly has a thing about him).

There are some genuinely thoughtful passages in this book, as well as facts that had me rushing to Wikipedia (IBM and the Third Reich - how had I never heard of that ?), and some innovative dubious practice, such as getting credit cards for your dog (who can end up with a better credit rating than you).

A funny enjoyable read by an anonymous (yeah - right) musician ... who had a string of hits in the late 1970s .... and wrote the theme music for Boon .... and got banned by the BBC.

5.0 out of 5 stars An essential guide for the serious musician, and a great laugh as well..., 4 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Irreverent, libelous, informative, practical, motivational, and very funny, this is one book that every aspiring musician should read, whether you're entering the music business for the first time, or have been banging your head against the brick wall of the entertainment industry for most of your life, like me.

The author clearly knows what he's talking about, but hasn't let his experiences leave him bitter, well, not too much anyway. Buy it, read it, refer to it often, and you too can be a veritable font of knowledge that young talentless whippersnappers will completely ignore. Screw 'em, I say.
