Publisher's Summary

You are a songwriter, and you need to unlock those great songs inside of you
Yes, this book is designed entirely to share those secrets that will inspire you to write that great song that you know you can! And once the creativity really starts flowing, we'll create great habits and write even more, each and every day. Get down to writing the music and the lyrics you know that you can because writer's block is a fantasy. You just need inspiration.
The Magic of Lyrics & Music
This book discusses creativity with the lyrics, creativity with the music, and creativity with the forms of your songs, with a number of actionable suggestions and creative exercises to get the juices flowing. There's also a brief discussion about good habits for songwriters to be more productive (or eventually become a professional), and a list of resource organizations and websites from performing rights to promotion.
If you want to develop as a songwriter, possibly even with the goal of going pro, then these are topics you need to think about:

The Songwriter's process
Creativity with form
Creativity with lyrics
Creativity with music
Rights, royalties, and piracy
Pro songwriter habits
And more...

Pretty motivating, short pep talk.

The book is quite well narrated for its genre. There was a bit too much self-promotion on the front and back for a less than one hour book, but that's the business for you. The material was actually quite motivating, and consisted of a few well supported bits of advice. I'd recommend it.

Worth a listen.

I got this as an audiobook to listen to in the car for inspiration for my songwriting, and it definitely worked. By the time I get home from the day job, I'm itching to work on some music, so from that point it's worth it.

A lot of the content is just common sense and tips that you might have heard before, but it's great to be able to listen to them altogether like this, especially in this format.

Definitely worth spending money on, as I'll listen to this over again.
