In We Learn Nothing, satirical cartoonist Tim Kreider turns his funny, brutally honest eye to the dark truths of the human condition, asking big questions about human-sized problems: What if you survive a brush with death and it doesn't change you? Why do we fall in love with people we don't even like? How do you react when someone you've known for years unexpectedly changes genders?

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.

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?

The music industry has changed from the days of the record labels being in charge of everything. Your success is not dependent on them alone anymore. David does a great job of spelling out the opportunities available to musicians of all stripes and describes the tools and techniques to help you engage with your audience. The audible.com version has a great appendix packed with information and an interview with the author.

What did you learn from Six-Figure Musician: How to Sell More Music, Get More People to Your Shows, and Make More Money in the Music Business that you would use in your daily life?

That it is not about you, but about making your audience feel good, that is the business we are in. The business is also not only about selling music, it is about engaging with your audience and making them feel good.
