A great look into the art of song writing, with many good tips and reasonably priced.

After reading this book you will understand a gray area. Reverse engineering? Plagiarism? The basic premise is that if you want to write a hit song you better learn how somebody else wrote a hit song because there is no room in pop music for your creativity. It would seem there is only one song and everybody else copied it.
Your opinion on whether Pharrell Williams and Robin Thicke should have paid $7.4m to Marvin Gaye's family over Blurred Lines will probably be your opinion of this book. Personally I'm on the fence so I give it three stars. The writing is fine and pleasant but I kept finding myself wondering how mankind could possibly progress if you just kept copying the guy before you. Sure the iPhone is just a copy of a telephone but isn't it better?

Good book but the key tips can be said with less words.
Also the music part is too simplistic.
