In an age when people are desperately trying to get on TV for no reason other than to "become famous" it's pretty inspiring to read a book by someone keen to follow a dream and better themselves for no reason other than the love of it. Will Hodgkinson learnt how to play guitar for his last book and this time around he's trying to learn how to write a song. It's fair to say that he didn't exactly succeed on that front (as a visit to his myspace page might attest) but he tells his story with such infectious enthusiasm, coupled with a rich vein in self-deprecation, which means that you can't help but root for him as he follows his quest.
Much as he did in Guitar Man, he also unearths some great advise from a interesting array of characters - from the more obvious 60s guitar heroes of which he's such a fan, like Keith Richards and Ray Davies, to the likes of Andrew Lloyd Webber, and a eccentric recluse by the name of Lawrence who used to front an obscure 90s indie band.
Inspiring stuff - and occasionally laugh-out-loud funny. Just don't expect to see him performing at the 02 arena any time soon!
