This book is a bit difficult to learn to use correctly. I was stymied when I first paged through it. But I followed the directions set forth in the essay at the beginning, and am finding the book very useful.

The book is organized by sound group. So you don't use it as you would a thesaurus by just looking up which words rhyme with "square" or "testify". You have to figure out where your word fits in the various sounds made by speaking the word aloud, and then go to the grouping and subgrouping which fits the sound.

Do keep in mind that the rhyming sounds used are the British pronunciation. So there may be some words suggested by the book which sound odd to American ears.

everything you need if you are a serious song writer. Definitely takes some of the work out of trying to rack your brain of words to rhyme
