520    From the Publisher:  For the first time, Appetite for Self
       -Destruction recounts the story of the precipitous rise 
       and fall of the recording industry over the past three 
       decades, when the incredible success of the CD turned the 
       music business into one of the most glamorous, high-
       profile industries in the world and the advent of file 
       sharing brought it to its knees. In a comprehensive, fast-
       paced account full of larger-than-life personalities, 
       Rolling Stone contributing editor Steve Knopper shows that,
       after the incredible wealth and excess of the '80s and 
       '90s, Sony, Warner, and the other big players brought 
       about their own downfall through years of denial and bad 
       decisions in the face of dramatic advances in technology. 
       Based on interviews with more than two hundred music 
       industry sources from Warner Music chairman Edgar Bronfman
       Jr. to renegade Napster creator Shawn Fanning Knopper is 
       the first to offer such a detailed and sweeping 
       contemporary history of the industry's wild ride through 
       the past three decades. From the birth of the compact disc,
       through the explosion of CD sales in the '80s and '90s, 
       the emergence of Napster, and the secret talks that led to
       iTunes, to the current collapse of the industry as CD 
       sales plummet, Knopper takes us inside the boardrooms, 
       recording studios, private estates, garage computer labs, 
       company jets, corporate infighting, and secret deals of 
       the big names and behind-the-scenes players who made it 
       all happen.
