Donald S. Passman, Randy Glass (Illustrator). For 20 years, Donald Passman’s book has offered detailed advice to I used to think that a business book was something very board that was made only for adults. When my dad told me to read All you need to know about the MUSIC BUSINESS, my life changed significantly. Finished my preliminary read through for All You Need to Know About the Music Business. This is a book to have on the shelve for future reference. This is a must-have book for anyone interested in the music business as a career.

All You Need to Know About the Music Business by Donald S. Passman is by far the best book to read for insight into the pros and the cons of the music business. Passman's knowledge is superior to any other music book that I have had the pleasure of reading. Many authors have released pertinent information about the realities of the business but Passman's approach is not only insightful but it is relaxing as well. His knowledge coupled with his humor, wit and enthusiasm soothes the anxiety of the reader. Instead of the reader being bombarded with only facts and figures, Donald Passman appears to display a more personal address.

Needless to say, there has been a mind-boggling array of changes in the music business over the past 28 years.

Well written, albeit, overwhelming. The author endeavors to fully equip the reader with the necessary tools to avoid being taken advantage of in a brutal industry. However, the use of percentages (however accurate) and bland details one quarter of the way in makes this a hard read. Just the same, I admire the author's effort to be truly helpful. But at the outset, like many others, I felt the best solution was to hire Mr. Passman, as I'm sure my fellow musicians share this sentiment. Otherwise, this is the nitty-gritty of a hard business.

I couldn't have asked for anything more. I'm newer to the industry as an agent, but I went ahead and read every page of this book since it definitely won't hurt learning every facet of the business. I can't remember the last time I was this excited and adamant about reading a book. I'll definitely refer back to it as my journey continues, but no matter your "stage" or "status" in the industry, do yourself a favor and read this book! And to everyone reading this in the industry and/or a musician, I wish you all the best!

Passman's book covers everything, right up to the new changes of the digital revolution that is taking place as I type...

I have read some other books and taken a course on EdX on the music business. This book is an excellent introduction to the clauses found in contracts, the negotiating points of contracts, the big picture of the music business, the options that artists have besides trying to sign with a major record label, and most importantly, what you can expect from each option that is out there.

This book makes clear the economics of the music business right now and how much money is out there for artists, where the money comes from, and whether and when (if) you can expect to get it.

It is written in clear language for everyone. Great read.

You dont buy this book... YOU dont take your craft seriously. I was skeptical at first but I pulled out a highlighter because it was to much good information. Wish it was in audio book format U Must buy this & its the current version. I am not being paid to say this nor have I met the author its just real ish.

I really enjoyed this read! Very informative and educational. The music business can be a beast. So arm yourself with this most important weapon when taking on the industry. It covers pretty much everything I think a beginner in the business should know. From start to finish it is vital information. Whether it be management or artist development and general structure. It leaves nothing be questioned. I was just starting out when I bought this book and now I'm more than confident of what I need to do to get to the next level of my musical career. It's a must-have as far as I'm concerned. To be great at anything requires preparation and proper instruction of proven techniques from those who have done it successfully. This book is a great example of that! Now I know the biz! That's what's up!

It takes gut and wisdom to become a part of the music and entertainment industry. It take much more to stay and make a living in it. All You Need To Know About the Music Business is a tool designed to help you to better understand all of the intricate parts that is being played in the industry. It is also a great tool to help you to see (if you do not have an idea) what type of role may interest you from artist, musician, engineer, publisher, promoter and songwriter to owner. This book will teach you the roles and responsibilities and how they interact with each other and how everyone gets paid.

I usually recommend this one or Everything You Better Know About the Music Business by Kashif depending upon the person's mentality. Let me tell you why because I believe that Passman's version provides you some quality, needed information from a business perspective and it is a little more technical and can be difficult to read while Kashif's version is much easier to read but offers advice from an artist perspective. I've read both books and both perspectives and can see the value from both sides. You will be a much wiser and equipped artist, musician, engineer, publisher, songwriter, etc if you learn everything you can about the industry and pick up a copy of both.

This book is highly recommended.

An important absolutely necessary book. A great and humorous read. This is the 4th edition of the book that I've purchased how ever it's the 1st that I've purchased from Amazon. It's a must read by a must read author. He's a high powered entertainment attorney, Donald Passman. Passman manages many high powered recording artist's careers, and these are big names that you would recognize. Donald knows from many years of practicing law in the music industry, just what he's talking about, and he writes in everyday common terminology, not legal terminology, which makes this book an entertaining and easy read. It reads like a conversation. It also contains just about everything anybody would need to know about the music business. I've gotten every new edition because the music business keeps changing and I want to keep up on every change. This particular book came to me in excellent condition. Cudos to the book store that sold it to me. And it came quicker than they said it would quicker than expected.

Great read with lots of insight into the industry. Just wish the author would answer my email L( Other than that, there is a deep trough of industry knowledge here for the taking. Get a copy ! Highly recommended.
