With over 30,000 new albums released yearly, the task of finding the best music can be daunting to even the most devoted music lover. For time-starved professionals, it is almost impossible. Impatient with a music industry catering mainly to teenagers, and busy with careers and family, many have simply abandoned the pursuit of new music. Now, thanks to a new generation of online music services, they can find good new music in a fraction of the time it once took. The newly published guide, " "The Music Internet Untangled: Using Online Services to Expand Your Musical Horizons" (Giant Path Publishing, October 2004, ISBN 1-932340-02-5, 211 pages, $19.95) shows readers how.

"What people will find," says author Andy 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." From Internet radio services to online jukeboxes and music download stores, there are scores of new options for music lovers to consider, all just a mouse-click away. "The Music Internet Untangled" makes sense of these options and shows readers how to make savvy use of these services, regardless of their Internet ability.

This jargon-free guide shows what each type of service has to offer and provides detailed profiles of the best services, complete with pros and cons, and concrete plans for getting up and running. Updated to reflect the latest developments in the world of online music, this book gives readers the knowledge they need begin a journey of online music discovery. Excerpts and a table of contents are available on the companion Web site (, where the book can also be purchased. It is also available for purchase on the ( and Barnes & Noble ( Web sites.
