Quality.

I am very new to writing lyrics, and this was great. But I can see this being a book mostly for noobies and beginners. Possibly even some lower to middle intermediate people only.
Overall very great though.

good but why are the chapters not labeled?

this is an audible original so the chapters should be labeled. other than that it's kind of short but a good place to start for the price.

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.
