Recommends it for: anyone who has majored in music
I wish this book had been published when I had graduated from music school. How do you crack into the music industry? What tools are absolutely essential to have to perform and market yourself? How can you make a living with what you've learned in school?

This book outlines in detail the answers to those questions. It does have a New York bias, as the author clearly acknowledges, but the advice can be translated to any location.

A lot of what I learned in this book, I had already learned the hard
Sort of like those "how to write a resume" books we used in our twenties, this is the book for a classical musician who's putting together a press kit. It's a little depressing if you're not in the fancy-conservatory-ready-to-do-competitions crowd, but still, there are a lot of good models in here for CVs, bios, headshots, press releases, and the like. Plus a great chapter for composers.
