"A fantastic read that cuts to the heart of what it feels like to struggle and triumph as a creative. This audiobook is a wealth of action steps to push through the invisible barrier that keeps many of us stuck. A fresh perspective that blends the mystery of creativity and the tangibility of results-driven music-making."

Hack

Don’t waste your time. You’ll never get it back.
Almost all the useful information is contained in the title. “If you want to be a songwriter, it helps to be organized.”

This book suffers from all the faults that plague the songwriting aid sub-genre. Most of this book is filler. There’s an excess of fanciful anecdotes that feel like an excuse to remind you that the author’s a bigshot in Nashville. A few clumsy phrases like “becoming more and more professional” are carpet bombed throughout. As a writer you’d think he’d be mindful of redundancies like this, economy, precision, and verbs — just say “gain expertise”or something.
Every page is infected with smarm and the relentless optimism of self-help-cult dogma.
The recording was put forward with an equaled carelessness. It’s riddled with poor audio quality, background noise, and glaring mistakes that would easily have been cleared out had anyone bothered to give it a casual listen before they dumped it on the market.

This is the latest seemingly unedited turd this author’s squeezed out. There’s little care or effort that went into it — and it shows.
Don’t give your money or your time to this unscrupulous hack or any of his other cash-grabs.
