'The art of songwriting is something I've explored all my life. It's a mysterious and elusive subject. In Song Man some of those mysteries have been unravelled. It's a great book' Richard Hawley 'An ace sequel to Guitar Man' Observer Music Monthly 'Once again, it's surprising how many famous names are willing to listen to our man's childlike fumblings, while artistic endeavour threatens to drive a truck through his seemingly lovely relationship ... it's hard to resist checking out Hodgkinson's efforts online' Time Out 'Amusing, informative and wish-fulfilling, Hodgkinson's book simultaneously makes you respect the genius of songwriters and fills you with hope that you might just be able to pen that number one yourself' Financial Times Magazine
