This book is absolutely excellent. It gives the detail we, as artists and managers, need to know--and it is given with clarity. I was also searching for a general book on management and found one that easily complements this superb book by these two experts. I also recommend a recently released and well-regarded book on leadership that is applicable to our industry---------it teaches us how to act and think like managers and leaders and take charge and responsibility when needed over our (as artists) or our clients' (if we are in management) careers. This outstanding and beautiful book is called "The Leader's Guide: 15 Essential Skills."
