A good synopsis of a detailed process.

It gave me a good start. It also provides a lot of paths for me to follow to increase my success. I always used to just write some lyrics but then the process just sort of dropped right there, now I know where to go next to finish a song. Good recommendations given for recording software.

A book about how to get started

I like this book as a short, concise overview of the things that one needs to do; research etc.- to get started writing songs. There is one theory mistake - the bass clef mnemonic she used ( every good boy deserves fudge ) should be for the trouble clef.

Nothing but trite generalities

This book is a kindergarten look at songwriting that has no analysis...it really just tells you to listen to music and teach yourself.
