From the Back Cover:

"A thorough and informative guide to understanding and negotiation of the essential provisions of a songwriter agreement."
       ---- Duff Berschbach, Esq., Senior Vice President, Business Affairs, Nashville, Sony/ATV Music Publishing LLC
 
There are lots of books on the music business. Most of them are worthless.  Steve Weaver's book on negotiating publishing agreements is priceless. This is a step by step guide that can be used by songwriters, publishers and attorneys. I wish this book had been around when I started practicing law."
       ---- Sawnie "Trip" Aldredge, Esq., Entertainment Attorney, Nashville Tennessee
 
"Steve, what a great gift to those who are trying to decipher the convoluted world of music publishing!. This book will be one of those 'must haves' for people wanting to learn how we get to a fair resolution of a publishing contract."
       ---- Tim Wipperman, CEO Wipperman Music Group (Former Executive VP/Executive GM, Warner Chappell Music (29 years); Former Chief Creative Officer and President, Equity Music Group)
 
Steve knows what items are important, and is one of those very few attorneys who always manages to cover both the short term desires and the long term needs of his clients.  I wish this book had been available at the beginning of my career."
       ----  Joseph F. Brazil, Esq., Law Offices of Joseph Brazil PLLC (Former In-House Lawyer and V.P. of Business Affairs for Major Record Label and Music Publisher)
