    Being an alumni of Berklee College of Music, the course this book was designed for was something I wanted to take, but I had already filled my elective courses required to graduate. I thought at some point I'd buy the book and read through it. Doing a lot of composing is something I've been into the past few years and I thought this book might give some great insight into the art of it. However this is not the case. The book seems more about the history and business side of things. Things like how to go about getting your music out there and how to make contacts. All of which is great information for anyone looking to potentially work as a composer.

    It's seemingly hard to find literature on the subject, so I don't have much to compare this book to. That said, I've learned SO much and I'm only about half way through. I was gonna skip to the parts that I thought would apply more to my current situation and I'm so glad I didn't. All of it is relevant, useful, and a good read. If film scoring is your thing, you should own this book.

    I'm just getting seriously interested in composition and music for films and I literally knew nothing about the process. This book was an excellent overall primer, was written very plainly and clearly and I walked away feeling like I understood the entire process of film scoring, all the steps involved, people involved, how royalties worked, how to get started, etc. I also really enjoyed the last section which contained many good interviews with seasoned composers. I would definitely recommend this book, especially if you are just getting started.

    I've come to recognize that any of the Berklee Press books will be excellent, but this book exceeded my expectation in nearly every way. Even though this is a textbook, it reads easily, and just as important, it is inexpensive. I was expecting a much smaller book for the price, and was surprised by the amount of material covered.
