    I’m reading it. Too early to form an opinion of it one way or the other. Some of what he offers is common sense stuff, some is stuff I’ve read about elsewhere.

    Reading it now. A quick read with some interesting insight into him and his process. Seems to be focused much more on writing lyrics than creating the music that goes with them, though I haven't finished yet. I'm enjoying it.
