Exactly what it said it was

Great little 40 minute summary of lyrics. I believe most books can be summed up in something like this so it is appreciated. I only wish the author added a little about themselves to establish some clout. Just preference there and I could just look it up I suppose. Thanks for the great read!

OK

The information is useable. I wasn't too impressed but it wasn't boring. Should have focused on fewer genres.

Informative insight for beginners only.

A common-sense exploration of what forms a song and how to organise thoughts into lyrics. A decent 101 for beginners, but very lacking in actual examples to help explain the theory beyond just discussion which may frustrate those looking for greater insight to get their teeth into and analyse.

At barely 43 mins long though, it serves beginners well enough to set them on the right path at least.
