    This tome was written 500 years ago. Okay, 12 years, but that's about the same thing by music industry standards. I scanned it in 2 hours. I'd say at least 50% of it is still relevant. Of course, those parts are boring, exceedingly technical, and IMPORTANT. The basic structure of a management team remains the same. Things to consider before making certain crucial career choices remain the same. Business plans remain the same. Etc. Can you get by as an artist or a manager without reading this?

But wouldn't you like to get a preview of what might be ahead of you if you take yourself seriously, especially if you can glean what you need from it in a single afternoon?

    Really wasn't what I was expecting - it's mostly a weird hash of stuff from the artist's POV and from the manager's. You can tell it's outdated at this point, when the author writes (or completely ignores) about the role of technology and the internet. I wouldn't recommend it at all for those looking to stay independent for the near future or permanently. Everything takes place on a much larger scale, and the book advises time and time again to go to NYC/LA/Nashville to make it big, which is a de Really wasn't what I was expecting - it's mostly a weird hash of stuff from the artist's POV and from the manager's.

Everything takes place on a much larger scale, and the book advises time and time again to go to NYC/LA/Nashville to make it big, which is a decision that needs to be made carefully. I did learn a bit, but I'm positive there must be a better book out there in terms of artist management.

    Excellent guide to the elusive craft of successfully managing music artists. The authors present a wealth of information on topics from hiring a team to handling publishing to dealing with personal crises and more. All of this is laid out in a very straight forward manner with bits of personal insight and experience to drive home their lessons. I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in the music business.

    Another of my secondary class texts, Billboard painstakingly (and accurately) dissects what is necessary for a proper artist/manager relationship and how to make it productive and potentially profitable. Everyone aspiring to a performance career should read this book before hiring a manager. Everyone interested in management should read this book before acquiring the first client!
