This book’s certainly not a technical manual for songwriters. It offer no insights into technique, structure or approach. But I wasn’t expecting that.
What I was expecting was a little inspiration. And when I read this book I found just that – in buckets!
It’s not the kind of book you read cover to cover, day after day, this is a book that you can leave by your favourite chair (or guitar) and just dip into very time you have a moment.
Rachel does a super job of making these iconic songwriting gods seem human. The book has a chapter dedicated to each of these songwriting legends and every one is personal, enlightening, insightful and inspirational.
Whether you are a songwriter or just an avid listener of music, you’ll love this book. From its chunky feel and heavy hard back cover to its inspiring interviews and interesting photographs it is a book you will reach for time and time again and enjoy replacing on the self for future visits.
In Summary – A fabulous book to be enjoyed in snippets over an occasional quiet glass of wine. And then enjoyed again over a few more.
