There are music biz books that talk about the same old stuff, and then there is this one -- the author clearly knows his subject matter inside and out, has ongoing relationships at the highest levels of the biz, yet still manages to deliver hard and fast advice for those aspiring to that level. This book is an inspiring, entertaining read that tells the truth.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
