Simply the best DJ book available., November 20, 2002

I have been searching for a book that clearly defines each type of "DJ", and this book does it incredibly well! I am considered a "beginner", and How To Be A DJ explained the skills, music and equipment I needed to get started. I have now been hired to DJ at two weddings which went really well, and the marketing tips in this book were very helpful to me, allowing me to book four Christmas parties! The marketing information in this book is priceless; no other DJ in my town
offers what I offer, but I imagine they'll copy me once they find out what's going on! Great explanation on the pros and cons of vinyl too. I almost went vinyl before I realized the benefits of CDs, and now you can even play and scratch with CDs too. The music lists in this book are from a few years ago, but that is actually a bonus, because most of the folks at my mobile DJ gigs are a little older and complimented me on my (well, the author's) music selection. I am quickly building a profitable business that would have taken me much longer without the information in this book! I would give it 10 stars if I could! I HIGHLY recommend reading this book, even DJs who think they already know everything. This was the best [money] I ever spent!

As a middle aged white male who's taste in music runs from The Mills Brothers to The Smothers Brothers I have always found it difficult to "make the scene" as the kids today say.
That is until I read this book. Not only is it an invaluable resource if you want to be a DJ but you can also learn a lot about current primative culture. After getting my tongue, nose and eyebrow pierced, assorted tribal tatoos I now wear my extra baggy bermuda shorts hanging off of my buttocks, my "gone fishin" baseball cap sideways and have ditched my wingtips for a pair of gymnasium sneekers. Much to my brothers delight I just DJ'd my nieces 16th birthday and I believe I was bad (which to kids today means good). So get jiggaly wit it home boy, pick up this book and get the 411 on the DJ life. Far out!!!
Great stuff., September 18, 2002

After reading in one of this author's other books that being a DJ is one of the top-10 jobs to get a date, I thought I'd pick this book up to see what being a DJ is all about. Very interesting stuff! This book explains how to get into being any kind of DJ you want - radio, clubs, bars, weddings, bar mitzvahs, internet. He covers equipment, music, marketing and more. The marketing section was of particular interest - a friend of mine is getting married in a few months, and I found a few add-ons in this book that he asked his DJ about. The book is funny too, detailing some of the author's strange personal experiences. Great stuff!
