    You're in a career where it's considered "normal" to be broke. If you were doing anything else for a living, you'd have given up by now.

    And I'm sure there are people in your life who wish you'd do just that... They want you to settle down, get a "real" job, and make music a hobby. Screw 'em. The truth is, if you know what to do, you can make a lot of money as a musician. This book shows you what to do.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Six-Figure Musician: How to Sell More Music, Get More People to Your Shows, and Make More Money in the Music Business the most enjoyable?

    Two things: the focus on how to realistically make this happen (there will be work, it's not overnight, but doing x, y & z this is how to realistically make it happen) and the focus on the "inner game." Too often it's our own thinking that stops us. Hooper covers that, too.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Since this is non-fiction and not a story, I'm not sure this question is applicable, but the example of Martha Walsh beating the music industry system was great to hear.


    Have you listened to any of Chris Caldwell’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This is the only title I've heard read by him, but I found him to be a quality narrator.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I did laugh. Some of the examples of success were polar opposites of each other (lesbian folk singers as opposed to Christian artists, for example) that they made me laugh, but they made the point that you can find your market, no matter how far outside of "the mainstream."


    Any additional comments?

    Great book. Great content. Good narration. Couldn't be more pleased with this purchase.

  • The Tao of Pooh

    Story

    Author Benjamin Hoff shows that the philosophy of Winnie-the-Pooh is amazingly consistent with the principles of Taoism and demonstrates how you can use these principles in your daily life. Is there such thing as a Western Taoist? Benjamin Hoff says there is, and this Taoist's favorite food is honey.

    Gavin says: "Simply Pooh"

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to The Tao of Pooh the most enjoyable?

    The author kept an authentic feel to the Pooh characters (i.e. they stayed in character), so it was a wonderfully charming book, yet had interesting philosophical insights. Simon Vance, of course, did a fantastic job narrating.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Tao of Pooh?

    Hard to pinpoint. I enjoyed the whole book. I did love the verbal interplay between Pooh and the narrator. Very funny.


    What about Simon Vance’s performance did you like?

    He narrates wonderfully well, consistently in character. Just an exceptional narrator in everything that I've heard from him.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Pooh, a philosophical genius? It's true.


    Any additional comments?

    If you enjoy Pooh and that type of storytelling and British humor and/or you would be interested in a light-hearted review of the tenants of Taoism (philosophical Taoism, not specifically religious Taoism), you'll find this well worth your time.
