The essence of this book is all about chords. Out of 249 pages of content, 181 consist of a chord directory which lists chords in various keys. And at the end of each key chord list, there's a page or two with a few sample chord progressions to try out. The chords are shown both in chord box format as well as with a picture of fingers on the fretboard of a guitar.
As for the rest of the book and the other subjects, they're merely touched upon sadly. It gives a few pointers on things over 1 to 3 pages and if you imagine that there have been whole books written on subjects such as `melody', to try to jam that into one page simply will not give you much usable information and therefore the book shouldn't really be advertised as a songwriting bible.
What it does, it does well, but it's a chord dictionary book more than anything else and if you buy it for that purpose, it is a 3.5 star book rather than 3. But since my evaluation also includes the other chapters, they were too weak to earn this book anything above 3 stars. It's acceptable, but certainly not a `bible' of anything, least of all songwriting.
