"Robert M. Sapolsky is one of the best science writers of our time."Oliver Sacks
For the first edition of Why Zebras Don't Get Ulcers:
Sapolsky succeeds in interpreting technical material in a way that leaves readers with an understanding of how the same physiological responses, so well suited for dealing with short-term physical emergencies, can turn into potential disasters when chronically provoked for psychological or other reasons....The author has a way with words and images....you'll find plenty to intrigue you. The Washington Post
Robert Sapolsky wittily dissects the anatomy of human stress-response. The Wall Street Journal
The subtitle continues: This book looks at the big monster of the entertainment industry from two primary perspectives: the artist's and the manager's. Some chapters are even subdivided into several parts to speak independently to the different readers. The authors cover a huge range of material gleaned from their combined sixty plus years in the industry, but their breadth sometimes comes at the expense of depth. For a good overview of what to expect in a music career from either side of the contract, this is a good reference. For the details, consult a manager. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
