Some may have read this already but, I found this book on a BBC website, its apparently the method of making a number one charting record. whether or not its completely factual or not i don't know, but it was an entertaining read none the less, i thought a lot of people here would find it interesting.
Even if its all different now it still gives a good insight as to the procedure of things and how to go about certain aspects of the business.
It was an old book written in '88 by the KLF? (who or whatever the KLF is i dont know.) And i think its more based on the UK too.
here is the link: The Manual by the KLF
