    Though the birth of the compact disc and the explosion of CD sales brought the record industry unprecedented wealth and prominence, the industry's failure to adapt to the changing times of file-sharing and online downloading has led to the demise of the music industry as we know it. In 'Appetite for Self-Destruction,' music writer Steve Knopper chronicles this phenomenon, drawing from interviews with more than two hundred music industry sources, and explains exactly how Sony, Warner, and other big players brought about their own downfall through years of denial and bad decisions in the face of dramatic advances in technology.
