Each chapter, of which there are twelve, can be likened to reading well crafted short-stories.
What I found amazing is how Tim Bragg expanded on a few lines of a lyric and created for us a journey of possibilities. Every person has dreams, hopes and ultimately wants peace and happiness.
So this isn't your usual self-help book, of which I have read many, whereby the author is often regurgitating what they have (possibly) just read. Not all self-help books but many!
Lyrics to live by is more about utilising the songs we all know and love and coaxing us in a more positive and wholesome direction.
The book is a meandering journey through life, love, loss, metaphor and rock music. It ticks all of the boxes for me and I read it in one sitting. I was totally hooked!
I think Tim is totally allowed his epilogue as this not only adds a nice conclusion to the wise words offered but also offers us a glimpse at Tim’s creative process and a deeper reflection of his transparent, humble and honest personality.
Thought provoking throughout, this book takes sections of a song's lyrics and then goes on to discuss their meaning, and how this can apply to us and how we can apply it to our lives. It's not self-help; it's more than that. This book challenges us to forget the 'accepted' way of thinking, and to make up our own minds. I wouldn't say it's an 'easy' read. If it were, it would be lost amongst the other manuals offering quick fixes to everyday problems. But this is genuinely a book worth reading through slowly, to work through and to dwell on, and to go back to, time after time
