OK

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

Songwriting: How to write lyrics for Beginners in 24 hours or less!

Very good Mr Alexander Wright, now I fully understand the structure of a form in writing I've heard these terms so many times and now I'm up to par. A few people I know that have been writing for some years will be very uplifted about this simple lesson.

Provides both Great and Vague advice.

More actual examples would be nice. This book seemed like it was written for those who intuitively pick up on the instruction being given.

It does give a nice structure to a creative process that is difficult for any one person to encapsulate. But the vagueness included here are almost too much mist to grab on to.
