Audible Editor Reviews

Experienced television actor Maxwell Glick's charismatic performance brings Mitch Weiss and Terri Gaffney's Managing Artists in Pop Music vividly to life. While it does offer a plethora of practical advice, this is not a generic how-to book, but rather a colorful, no-nonsense look through the perspectives of both managers and artists at how to succeed in a hyper-competitive industry.
Glick's upbeat, dynamic delivery captivates the listener from the start, and adroitly captures the book's informative, revealing, and sometimes cautionary tone.
