Good information and well structured. My reservations were with the audio. How can a music guy possibly think it's a good idea to use that much reverb on an audio book makes me question his cred. The stilted read is more forgivable, but maybe the extra beat between each word is akin to double spacing your book report to make it seem longer.

All in all, I do recommend the book. I just wish I knew going in about the audio strangeness, just to be ready. Good ideas and insights, but really, reverb?

A Great book!

Concise and inspirational. It breaks down the key aspects of your inner songwriting skills, and highlights the good aspects of being a humble yet great performer. All in all, a good audio book for budding songwriters.

Pretty solid.

Very solid book. I'd recommend it to anyone wanting to learn the basic fundamentals, or any seasoned song writer looking to step back and reexamine themselves and how to write. My only complaint was the reverb during the narration.

Good advice, but tough to listen to with all that reverb.

Some great information. It is marred by the fact that it is tough to take advice about what to do in music from someone who thinks that using that much reverb on spoken word is appropriate.
