Worth a listen.

I got this as an audiobook to listen to in the car for inspiration for my songwriting, and it definitely worked. By the time I get home from the day job, I'm itching to work on some music, so from that point it's worth it.

A lot of the content is just common sense and tips that you might have heard before, but it's great to be able to listen to them altogether like this, especially in this format.

Definitely worth spending money on, as I'll listen to this over again.
