Great book. Not a book about music theory or notes; it's about the business, logistics, and practicalities of working on scores, with a bunch of interviews with successful composers talking about their successes and failures. It's a tiny bit out of date (1999), but really good stuff.

Great book with much of the information one would need to get started as a professional Film Scorer. I wasn't to keen on the interviews at the end because many of the chapters had excerpts from each of the composers interviewed, from there it was kind of down hill. All and all it was a great book. Seemed more so like it could possibly be used as a classroom tool for teaching film composition to students.
