The second half, "Business Models," looks at the "business" side, and contains many tips about the practical side of the music industry - using internet content, budgets and breakevens, tax issues, when to incorporate and why, and much more. Simply put, Navigating the Music Industry is the most complete book on the subject to date. Previously announced as What's Going On?: Current Issues in the Music Business.
