I had no experience in the music business, but a lot more in event arranging. As an expeience organizer, but an beginner in the music industri working with a young country and western band I have to say I am impressed. I have had a lot of use of this book although I live in Sweden and the book probably is written more for a native English speaking audience.. ;-)
This book helped me throughout my studies at University - it contains a wealth of information and if used well it will help you excel in your studies. Not just for the student, if you're passionate about the Music Industries then this will assist you in your journey to find out more!
