Muller's work is designed to provide a comprehensive introduction to the major agreements prevalent in the recording and music entertainment industry today. Muller begins with the basics of the personal management and agency agreement and then examines the types of agreements a successful musician/group would encounter: recording and performance rights, film, commercials, tours, and personal appearances. Examples of the agreement forms currently being used are provided in an appendix. The book concludes with a bibliography and general subject index.
