Not a Finance Book for Musicians, or Creative Businesses!2014年11月28日にアメリカ合衆国でレビュー済み
While I can certainly appreciate the author's love for music this alone doesn't make his book "Money Music 101" a finance book for musicians and creative people. This is no more a book for musicians as it is a book for Plumbers, professional or aspiring. I would have given this book three stars due to some valuable nuggets of wisdom regarding basic (very basic) finance logic (like make more than you spend), but the author totally deceives the buyer buy claiming this book is targeted to people in the music business, professional or aspiring. This is simply False Marketing. And, this type of marketing should not be tolerated. While I understand what the author was probably thinking from a marketing standpoint (musicians are historically money dumb) it was wrong to mislead buyers who will spend their 'hard-earned' money on a book that will not help them become any better at their chosen profession. Now they are out the money on the author's book, so they are that much poorer. This is, in part, why I think this book deserves only two stars. If the author changed the title to something like "Basic Money 101" I would not have been so harsh. But, then again, I would have never spent my "hard-earned" money on a book about very basic money like simple interest scenarios, five sentences about insurance companies, and how to write a check. Really? Overall this book was pretty insulting as the material is so very, very elementary. I recommend, if it's still available, the book Finance for Musicians if you are a music person looking for a solid book dedicated to Finance for music people.
