As a recovering alcoholic and drug addict this book and course helped me get back on the straight and narrow. It wasn't easy but it was worth it.

Not just for teenagers or beginners!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes. I know numerous songwriters and people who aspire to be. The book has some brilliant suggestions on how to get ideas down on paper, developing them, and even advice on how to tackle the inner voice of discouragement that can plague songwriters who are over critical of their work.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Songlab?

For me it had to be the suggestions on getting songs ideas down. I'm a professional songwriter but have hit a wall of writer's block that I really needed to get over. I tried the techniques in this book, which are different to my normal methods, and things started to flow again.

Have you listened to any of Alex Forbes’s other performances? How does this one compare?

No.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Nothing really emotional about it other than getting excited about trying out some of the ideas and techniques. Songwriting is a passion.

Any additional comments?

Great for beginners and professionals looking for some new ideas or just getting back to basics. Well written and very well presented. Not too long or complicated. A great springboard into the world of songwriting :)

I absolutely loved this audiobook. I've always wanted to get around to reading The Lord of the Rings but I've never been able to set aside the time. I got bored of listening to music in the gym, and podcasts weren't cutting it, so I decided to try an audiobook. The LOTR immediately sprang to mind. I signed up to Audible, downloaded the books to my iphone and I've listened to 30 minutes three times a week during my workout.



The amount of detail in this book can seem overwhelming at first as Tolkien's style of writing is descriptive and thorough, but if you're a fan of the movies you get to know more about the different races; hobbits, elves, dwarfs; the characters, where they come from, family lineage etc; Middle Earth Mythology and history; and this opens up the story into a tale of epic proportions. It's just massive! If it's a fast paced adventure you're after then this might not suit, however the audiobook version is fantastic if you can listen whilst doing something else, like working out in the gym. If you have the patience you won't be disappointed. Rob Inglis does a great job of narrating the story. He's easy to listen to and pitches the story perfectly. This was my first audiobook experience and it was fantastic.
