Every point he makes is supported by pedagogic examples; every stage in songwriting - from the lyrics' idea to singing and arrangement - is covered, and lots of lessons learnt by Brian, his collaborators and his students are shared with the reader as well. Way beyond just "lyric writing"!
And, if you are in doubt, check out Brian's music on Spotify or CD Baby, as his songs will tell you more than any readers' words can tell. My personal favourite is his musical, "the Independent Man".
And, one more thing - the book can also be used as a check-list for the future songs, as we tend to forget what we learn, as the time flies. It is very easy to navigate and very helpful if you get a writer's block. I just wish I had got it earlier!
