If you are expecting predictions as to what music will "sound" like, as I was, you will be disappointed. This is all about the music industry, not music itself. However the book sums up recent music industry history very well, and shines light into a lot of dark corners. It shows the RIAA fight against Napster et al as the short-sighted self-protectionist farce we all knew it was, and how current industry practices are driving customers toward file sharing instead of away.
Then the book moves on to talk about what music could and should be like to ensure the future of the industry. Very interesting reading, and some novel parallels with water, but I doubt this book will influence anyone. It works better to enlighten the masses as to where the industry is already heading.

This book is extremely dissappointing. The logic and underlying philosophy is overly simplistic and utopian. Basically this is a 7 hour diatribe on the merits of a revamped IP system with no sound rationale behind it other than "music as water". If the authors' had any understanding of the global water industry and its history they would understand how idiotic their comparison is. The WORST book I have gotten at Audible out of 20 or so books.
Even my wife who is not technical at all said this book was terrible and overly simplistic.
