"If your bookshelf or wallet can only accommodate one book at this moment, it should be this one."
Quick description of book
This book is a must for all songwriters and fans of great music -- 52 interviews with the greatest songwriters of our time -- from Sammy Cahn through Bob Dylan through Paul Simon up to and beyond R.E.M. These discussions allow these songwriters to talk seriously and in-depth about their great songs and about the creative process. Many great songwriters who have already passed away are included, such as Frank Zappa, Laura Nyro, Harry Nilsson and others. This book is entertaining, informative and archival. And on the subject of songwriting, I don't think there is any other that is better.
