Very passionatlly read

I really enjoyed this book.
The detail and length are encyclopedic. In my opinion this just shows the author's love for the subject and his caring for those that will read this book.
There are passion and experience in his voice that turn a potentially dry and dusty topic into an interessting chat with a long time and trusted friend.
Easily worth twice the number of stars.

so much waffle and common sense

really struggling to find anything in the first 86 chapters that isn't common sense or just really vague and related purely to attitude and behavioural problems. might be worthwhile for very young people and those who are just about to start out but as someone with only a few years in the industry I honestly can't bring myself to finish this in the vague hope that there might be a handful of things that might be beneficial to my progression.

Interesting and Insightful

Would you consider the audio edition of The Artist's Guide to Success in the Music Business (2nd edition) to be better than the print version?

Yes, have the audio version narrated by Loren Weisman means that emphasis is given correctly to certain parts and some of the (cheesy) jokes are a little more humorous.

Who was your favorite character and why?

There were no characters per say, however I found the true life accounts of people Loren had come into contact with very interesting.

What about Loren Weisman’s performance did you like?

The way he really put across the amount of hard work and determination is needed during each part of the musicians journey.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

What does success mean to you?

Any additional comments?

Though some parts of this book could come across simplistic and basic, it provides much deeper analysis into party of the music industry that most newcomers wouldn't even consider. If you take the experience that is on show here, and use it to better yourself, this could end up being one of the most influential books you'll ever read.
