At first glance this is a rather pricey manual for starting a publishing company, but MUSIC PUBLISHING covers the process from top to bottom, beginning with the obvious first step of setting up the business and continuing clear down to the more sophisticated problem of administering others' catalogs. Each music business author has a unique approach, and Whitsett proves to be unusually well qualified to advise publishers, thanks to his wealth of domestic and foreign experience working with major publishers. The mouth-watering chapter in Whitsett's book, which echoes most young songwriters' first question, is "How Much Can I Really Earn from a Hit Song?" For anyone contemplating a venture into publishing, I strongly recommend Tim Whitsett's guidebook. Ron Simpson

"Music Publishing" by Tim Whitsett is a value tool to understanding, filing, and starting up any goals in the music industry. The biography of the author is amazing and what he shares through his years of being as music publisher is invaluble. At first look I was skeptical and assumed that my many other books would cover the information in here. I was wrong, this book is detail in, not only, what music publishing is, but how to publish music. The slant of the author is clear when he states that he can never understand why an artist would not publish his/her own music. Another good book about publishing is "Music Publishing: A songwriter's Guide," (it is cheaper than this book) which the author has just as much creditals as Tim Whitsett, but Whitsett goes into more depth making this book a more value tool.

I have to rate this publication highly because it really explains in simple clear language the whole business of music publishing. I have to acknowledge the fact that it assisted me in landing a deal with an independent film company in Germany. I would say buy this book you will make back the cost believe me. It is my second bible.
