This is a great read for anyone wanting to sing for a living. It is very well written and informative. I would certainly recommend purchasing this book if you are just starting out or thinking about singing for a living. I personally know the Author - Andrea and she has been making a living for years singing - and knows the business inside out. Also, she is a fab singer - lol - hence why she actually makes a living at it. She is also very versatile in what she sings. This book is well worth the money - a very good read - you will not be disappointed.
