A well rounded read not just about life as a musician but also how to approach life in general. You often get told by authors to do this or do that but for once you'll be told what not to do. And that is equally important knowledge, too.

Useful, practical advise for those wanting to enter the music business by someone who has been there. Author Steve Grossman is a seasoned and experienced musician who has worked with some of the top people in the music business and has earned many accolades--including a Grammy.

He also delivers a great seminar utilizing principles from this book. The advise is not just applicable for those in the music business, but can be used by anyone looking for good, solid business (and life) advice.
