New Book Cuts Through Hype Surrounding Online Music Services. Consumers Gain Electronic Guide to Music Options

2/16/04

Consumers now have access to a jargon-free guide to online music services. The newly published guide, THE MUSIC INTERNET UNTANGLED: MAKING THE NEW ONLINE SERVICES WORK FOR YOU, helps consumers at every level of Internet ability identify the best music services for their particular interests and needs.

WATERTOWN, MA (PRWEB) -- Consumers now have access to a jargon-free guide to online music services. The newly published guide, THE MUSIC INTERNET UNTANGLED: MAKING THE NEW ONLINE SERVICES WORK FOR YOU (Giant Path Publishing, January 2003, ISBN 1-932340-00-9, 193 pages, PDF e-book, $9.95), helps consumers at every level of Internet ability identify the best music services for their particular interests and needs.

“The good news,“ says author Andy Breeding, “is that online music services offer great opportunities for music lovers to expand their listening enjoyment. The bad news is that these opportunities are obscured by hype and controversy surrounding online music.” With media attention focused on downloading, important listening options are overlooked. These include online jukebox and Internet radio services, both of which provide cheap access to vast quantities of new music. By understanding the pros and cons of these services, as well as those of the downloading services, we position ourselves to make the best online music choices.

Written in clear language, THE MUSIC INTERNET UNTANGLED gives consumers the tools to find and enjoy more music than ever before. Readers will find out what distinguishes the good services from the mediocre ones, and receive concrete guidance and tips for getting started. “What people will find,” contends Breeding, “is that today’s music scene is richer than they think. Beyond the wasteland of commercial radio and throwaway pop music, lies a wealth of musical riches—largely invisible to the public—but easily found if you have the right tools.”

While similar books go out-of-date rapidly, this one is updated quarterly and made available as a downloadable PDF e-book, complete with hyperlinks to all discussed music services and Web sites. This e-book is readable and printable using the free Adobe Acrobat reader that is already installed on most consumer PCs. THE MUSIC INTERNET UNTANGLED is available for immediate purchase and download at Giantpath.com (http://giantpath.com), where more information, including the table-of-contents and introduction, are available. The Spring 2004 edition will be available in early March. The print edition will be available later this year. To obtain a media review copy or schedule an interview to discuss topics related to this book, contact Andy Breeding at (800)972-1708.

Andy Breeding has been showing others how to get the most out of online services for over 15 years. A research librarian, trainer, and conference speaker, he credits the new online music services for reawakening his interest in contemporary music.
