Exceptional book series, bad narration

Can not be more satisfied with the content of this book. Goes into depth with each topic in a clear manner which average people can understand and execute. I have listened to both books and highly recommend to someone interested in the music business and plans to make money. Wish I would have known this info before releasing music in the past.

As far as Nader Nejad goes, I’m sure he is a good guy, but gotdam bro. Your audio is hot trash. I can hear feedback, I can hear cars outside, coughs, heavy breaths, terrible quality audio. Worst audio I have heard all year after 13+ audiobooks. Quit trying to do audiobooks bruh. Please.

Never learned so much

Between these two books I feel like I’ve learned more than all the books I’ve read prior since 2003 which is easily over 100. The author puts it in plain English not music industry talk or legalease.
