    Read this as a refresher course before starting my new job as, well, a music publisher. It's very helpful, but lacks some of the practical examples and more thorough explanations of "Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About the Music Business" or whatever it's called by Don Passman. But there's plenty of useful information in here, and I think he covers all of the major bases. And it's a damned quick read, even though I took my time finishing it (really probably read it over 3 days or so).

And it's a damned quick read, even though I took my time finishing it (really probably read it over 3 days or so). It's worth noting that this is really written from an independent artist's perspective, so if that something you need in our life, don't skip this one.

    A monumental read for me as a starting independent musician. This can be a tough read, especially for the many creative types who may not be as accustomed to absorbing lots of technical material. But, take your time and stick it out! This information will save your music from being abused by the many ignorant and malicious parties in the music industry. Even if you don't opt to go the more traditional route and choose to “DIY” it, this book has a lot to offer you.

I also really appreciate the bits of comedy mixed into the technical-heavy sections to make the medicine go down.

    “Songwriters must both internalize and publicly exude the conviction that what they posses is valuable.” This was the first book that clearly explained the different types of music royalties and gave good examples. It also outlines the the different types of publishing agreements and their advantages and disadvantages. It explains music copyright and has an excellent glossary of terms found on a typical music contract.
