However, I can honestly say right now that this is THE book for everyone who doesn't have access to a workshop or specialized program, as well as those of us who do. Mr. Spencer apparently remembers everything he's ever learned about the art of making a musical and passes it on in this splendid, concise, and entertaining volume. A must-buy, and that's the plain, unvarnished truth.
With that out of the way - This book is a wonderful resource, an absolute gem!
There is lots of great advice in there. Great nuts and bolts stuff, great advice on collaborations, good tips on craft... the list goes on. For me, I certainly put this on the required reading list next to Dana Singer's "Stage Writers Handbook" for books that offer sound advice on business and craft of musical theatre.
If you plan on writing musicals - get this book. If you've written musicals, and even been produced - get this book and read it any time you are starting a new musical. It's a great guide, but can also serve as a refresher course for how to do things right.
