I wish I heard that as a teenager

Voicing is easily understandable but sometimes a bit rough. The book covers so many aspects of "what to think about as soon as you see yourself out of your room" that it bursts any whiner's speech that has discouraged me from achieving my compositions since I was 16 (Im 26) because of all the guilt around the idea " if I think about selling music, I am no more a musician" and commonly-related ideas exposed in the book. a must read for any people looking to fill a lack of knowledge about what "music industry" means and how it is not that flawless soul-selling machine many think it is when they clearly don't understand how things go everywhere.

More for dreamers than do'ers

Too much about about top level problems, not much on how to get to theTop.

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.

Calling this book a "must read" is an understatement

Jam packed with information for any musician planning on making steady income with music. Loren Weisman makes sense of it all in away that honest but not overwhelming.

Recommended for all musicians

Very detailed.
Perfect for inexperienced, but beneficial for experienced musicians as well.
Every aspect of the musician's career analyzed very thoroughly.

Just one complaint.

This book should be listened to by any body that wants to pursue or is pursuing music not just as a hobby but a career. I run into musicians that I really wish knew just some of the basics of professionalism.

One complaint. I wish the chapters were labeled something other than chapter numbers. It takes forever to go back and find something. We can't always hit the bookmark button, when we need to.

It's got everything.

This audio book is exactly what I was looking for when I was looking for a complete and comprehensive guide to get my Metal band Into Existence to be a bigger player in the music scene. I will be listening to this book several more times. \m/

Passionately-Delivered but Sprawling & Unorganized

It's 18 hours long, so one could argue that it's good value for money. But the author delivers it in a stream-of-consciousness meandering fashion that makes it a frustrating listen. He's passionate about the subject, but the lack of editing is evident. You'll find him starting a section on e.g. social media marketing and then suddenly going off on a rant on why some people make it and others don't, before returning to social media marketing, and then suddenly bouncing to a completely unrelated topic almost in the same breath. This pattern repeats itself. It's made worse by the fact that some genius decided to break it into 261 chunks on Audible. We have the bookmarking feature; we don't need 261 mini-chapters. It actuallly makes it more - not less - difficult to navigate. If you're like me and you like to re-wind and re-listen to various sections while working through a audiobook, then 18 hours could easily turn into 25 or 30 hours, and that's time that arguably could be better spent. I suggest playing it at 1.25 speed.

In terms of content, if you're a live act then you might get something out of it, but it's mostly Tony Robbins-style fire-under-your-behind tough-talking motivation, combined with tips that are out of date even though the book is only a few years old. A lot of it assumes you're looking to get CD sales out of all of your marketing efforts, which in 2018 simply isn't the case for the vast majority of small/independent artists.

There's no money in music for the vast majority of artists these days. That's not the author's fault. But you're better off following some music marketing/business blogs/podcasts if you want specific, up-to-date tips. But again: staying up to date is no guarantee of success. Working hard is no guarantee of success (despite what the author would have us believe).
