    Greg’s review is not a review. It’s a mention. It’s nice and all, but I went there hoping to get more of a handle on what this book is about and got basically no info. Don’t bother following the link.

    Do yourself a favor and download this RIGHT NOW.

    I just recently spoke on a panel and I listed this ebook as a must read to get a good handle on how to navigate the music industry today.

    It is in the same league with Gerd Leonhard’s “Music 2.0”; Andrew Dubber’s “20 things you must know about Music Online” Seth Godin’s” Tribes”, “Clutrain Manifesto”, “Listening to the Groundswell” & Brian Solis ‘s “Putting the Public Back in Public Relations”

    You guys fuckin rock!
