Annie Lennox: It makes for a fascinating read…Especially if you’re trying to get a sense of what it takes to write songs…

Joan Armatrading: I think you will enjoy this book.  It’s a good read and I was really interested to see what other songwriters had to say about their way of going about the creative process.
