  • Better than my law books!

    By Sneak Dick
    So, Wendy just gave the inside view and breakdown of the structure of the industry and it’s agreements. I started reading this book today during a canceled law school class. By the time I finished it, I had missed my second class and didn’t even realize it! I took more notes reading this book than I did reading Constitutional Law I or II. That says a lot about how her conversational style works in terms of explaining the game and it’s dynamics.

  • It's not up for negotiation...BUY THIS BOOK!

    By MDuperley
    As an artist manager, I have to say this book has confirmed and given me priceless information that I know will guarantee my artist and I future success. Wendy unselfishly shares her 20plus years of experience and I must say in a very real, no holds barred kind of way. She goes into depth concerning deals and contracts and wisely instructs the artist financially by brining awareness to their worth and by laying out in dollars and cents, their return. Excellent book. I would recommend this book to every serious artist and manager who look to build a lasting financially yielding career in this music BUSINESS. BRAVO WENDY! I am looking forward to your next book as the key to success is knowledge and experience. You are a great teacher! Marlene Duperley
