I'm learning how to distinguish myself from other songwriters and this book gave me so many practical ways to approach the business. There are also excellent tips on how to improve my song so that the "ears" out there can better hear it. It's an easy read. Why wasn't it written sooner? I can see how this book is not only helpful for songwriters but for anybody who has something to sell.
