This is a unique book, unlike other music business texts. We do not deal with only the legal aspects of the business, and we don't treat our book as "How to protect the artist from being mistreated by the recording industry," as so many other texts do. Instead, we break down the recording industry into its component parts and explain how each of them works. Like any other for-profit business, the goal of the music business is to make money. So when decisions in the music business are made to maximize profits, readers need understand the rationale for those decisions. That is the goal of this book.
