We respect the reader's time.
With 9GiantSteps Books, we're taking a different approach. We'll publish books at the length sufficient to express the actionable idea, and not a word more. This may mean the end result is a 35-page book, or it may be a 200-page book. We will not be constrained by or adhere to outmoded publishing practices; even if this means pricing the books at a significantly lower price point than if the books were "fleshed out" with non-value-adding chapters.
What Others Say
“George’s thinking has always been one step ahead of the majority of the music industry. But beyond just thought he also brings with that sharpened insight an ability to act and execute which makes for a rare and powerful combination. This makes his relevant and powerful work a joy to behold and I consider myself lucky (as should anyone reading this) to be in his orbit."
"George Howard was one of the earliest thinkers to appreciate that decentralized technology could revolutionize the media industry, and music in particular. His writing on these possibilities chronicles the infancy of what may turn out to be a new epoch for creators, and for the professionals and organizations who support them."
"George's long history of leadership in the music and technology space, and empathy for the creators, makes him extremely well suited to report on progress in the music & blockchain space and to paint a picture of positive possible futures for musicians and the broader music world."
"There is no greater ally to any artist than George Howard. His genius and expertise in the world of changing technology is what he uses to help artists protect themselves. He is brilliant, always ahead of the curve, and the best mentor an artist could ever have.”
“Here we are in mid 2017 and looking back to 2014 it's a different world with respect to world interest in Blockchain...George already understood the potential, and was seminal in catalyzing the ecosystem around a project that evolved from the first Blockchain Summit I drove...George's background spanning technology, media and music is a perfect combination to lay the groundwork for what is to come.”osion of activity currently and how it will transform our world."
"The music business has a few old problems that are in dire need of some new solutions. Though the future is impossible to predict, George Howard has seen glimpses, and his vision has been clearer and further-sighted than most. In addition to his deep experience as an entrepreneur at the intersection of technology and music, his career as an educator has made him an incredibly effective advocate of that vision."
