I'll start off by saying I've been working in live sound for years and been a performer for longer. On top of being a very good describer of roles and key issues around industry careers the author (Xavier) explains in very precise detail what is involved from the start of a band to the high points. It is realistic and not out there in the clouds about managing "The Rolling Stones." Although this deals with management it is great for people interested in the industry. I speak highly of this book because I've had paid (at amazon.com) for books with 10% of the information in this book for [money]. Get this book and "This Business of Music" M. William Krasilovsky, these are great resources for the beginning to advanced people of knowledge of the industry. Also I must mention (what the description doesn't) that the book has sample contracts in the back that are very good.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not that great. Feb. 25 2003
By A Customer
A decent primer for a completely inexperienced beginner, but it hardly goes past what anyone with basic perception & common sense would already know. And the new edition is deceptive, too - the guy still talks about sending "demo cassettes" - it's pretty sad that they can't even update that basic of a detail. I'd STRONGLY recommend opting for 'All you need to know about the music business' by Donald Passman - it's infinitely more detailed & helpful, and is a very easy, yet informative read - you can get as much or as little out of it as you need.

4.0 out of 5 stars "A realistic view of the industry and the artist." March 13 1998
I thought it was a good reference for the beginner. I felt that for such an extensive topic, the authors were able to convey the subject matter objectively and precisely without inundating the reader with meticulous explainations. I have referenced this book countless times since I purchased it, and I feel that it is an asset to my library.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great information March 16 1999
By A Customer
This book is great for anyone trying to gain a better understanding of just what artist management involves. I had only a limited knowledge of the subject and learned a great deal from this book.
I would definitely recommend it!
