Musician's Handbook: A Practical Guide to Understanding the Music Businessby Bobby Borg
NOTE: The Musician’s Handbook investigates the “realities” of the music business behind the glamourous fantasy world often portrayed in the media. It is designed to help you to understand the ins and outs of the music industry. At times it will seem harsh. But the more aware you are of the potential obstacles in your path, the better prepared you will be to overcome them. Whether you’re out on the road, or just getting ready to cut your first record, it pays to be armed with as much ammunition as possible. Perhaps these quotes from a popular book among music industry executives will help illustrate my point:
"Know yourself and know your enemy and you will fight a hundred battles without disaster."
"Know the ground, know the weather; your victory will then be total."
Sun Tzu, from The Art of War
