I just finished reading the book. Love it! Wow! Very up to date. You've covered every important detail every musician and amateur producer needs to know. I learned a lot. You've covered everything, really, and very honest too! This book is really very helpful to those who are starting with the music business and are confused about how to get started especially when it comes to the agreements, forms to use, copyright, legalities and royalty. I've been through all the confusions, stresses and headaches that's why can I really see the importance and value of this book. Great job! Congratulations!
