I found this book really full of ideas. After a brief test of personnality it helps you in order to develop your skills
in writing songs. It explains you the way you're likely to write, (as the test reveals) with your best points and weaknesses, and how to improve your writing consequently. Then you're given 40 ways to find ideas for your songs, to find a title and so on. I must warn you that this book is an advanced one, the basis of lyric writing are explained in two others book of the same author
("the craft of lyric writing" and "successful lyric writing").
The authors describes the basic principles (rythm, rhymes, structures...) only briefly and assumes you're familiar with them. If that's the case you'll find this book highly interesting and inspiring.
