Don't bother!

This book is basically a glossary of the music industry. It explains all the terms and players in the music industry. If that's what you want then fair enough.
However, the title states 'make money from music'
Unfortunately the book doesn't explain what to do? How to go about things? In the current climate for Unsigned band.
The narrator is robotic.
I've not learned anything to propel my band forward.
