5.0 out of 5 stars Packed with ideas, 16 May 2012
This review is from: Lyrics: Writing Better Words for Your Songs (Songwriting) (Paperback)
Tried several other books to help me write song lyrics - always found them a bit general. Rooksby's is in a whole different league. Its packed with ideas. If I cant think of a theme I just go straight to Section 9 a sourcebook of themes and I usually find something to get me started. Lots of interesting quotes and interviews too. If you write songs you need this on your table.

Richard, you could try Sammy Cahn's "Songwriter's Rhyming Dictionary".

It is pretty old-school, in that the dictionary itself has many old and rusty words.

However, the rest of the book is solid gold- The guy knew his stuff, he wrote tons of hits for films back in the day and that is more than can be said for a lot of these 'authors'
