    Amazing book. I read it straight through, but it will take weeks to follow all of the advice outlined. As a long time musician, I really appreciate that the author Amanda Krieg Thomas took the timeout of her active schedule to help us out like this. Every step of the process seems to be covered, and I'll have to edit this after I try them out. I didn't realize I should be signed up to ASCAP as a publisher as well as a songwriter, which I immediately fixed, so this book helped me before I finishe Amazing book.

I didn't realize I should be signed up to ASCAP as a publisher as well as a songwriter, which I immediately fixed, so this book helped me before I finished reading it. That was just one of the many things I learned about. It's also a fascinating look into a little known part of the music business, at least to me. A music supervisor sounds like a fun job. I recommend this book to any songwriter.

    Real,relevant and honest. It's like having the experience of several sync conferences in your hands. If it was a physical book it would have been scribbled and dog-eared all over it.

    I read this book as someone looking to get into music clearance. While the book is mainly for those hoping to pitch their music, I found this incredibly helpful for learning lingo, and etiquette in the sync world, as well as getting a better understanding of a Music Supervisor's daily work.

    Thinking In Sync Wonderful read. I gained a lot of useful information when it comes to navigating the world of music publishing and beyond. The author is very knowledgable in this department, and as a result, I’m a fan of her work.

    Very helpful A really good introduction to this complex area of the music industry. After reading it I feel like I’m ready to launch from the starting blocks in terms of pitching my music to sync and licensing companies and music supervisors.

    A Great Primer There is a process for almost everything in life and the author provides a blueprint for getting syncs. Almost as valuable as the listing of “things to do” to achieve your goals, was a list of things “not to do”. It was a really good read.
