"Logan Westbrooks is a trail blazing music industry executive. He has a vast wealth of knowledge and insights acquired from decades of experience and rigorous study. His book is required reading for those seeking insight into the ‘anatomy,’ or constituent structures that make up the complex institution known as The Music Industry. The Anatomy of the Music Industry provides a much-needed view from the bridge to help navigate an industry shaped by changing technologies and global networks of distribution and consumption".
