Fantastic read. I appreciated the authors insight into the daily grind of the average musician. I would recommend this not only to drummers, but to other musicians as well.

A comprehensive guide for all drummers at different stages of their career. Whether just starting out in the industry or if you have been performing for a while, this book outlines everything you need to take you to the next level. Step by step information from the author who draws on his personal experience traveling the world as a professional musician. The interviews throughout the book are also an excellent insight from industry leaders. Great read, easy to follow and many tips including inside information that you cannot find with any other book in this field. Highly recommended.
