Reviews

"[How to Write One Song] is one part manual for composing a song, and one part philosophical inquiry into the human desire-the human need-to create. It's also an easy, delightful read."
-Esquire.com

"[A] generous and thoughtful argument for carving time out for creativity. [Tweedy] attempts to demystify songwriting, offering both encouragement and practical tips that from anyone else might read as self-help. But instead, Tweedy strikes a tone that's more like that of an exuberant friend: You have to try this, man. And you'll want to."
-Chicago Tribune

"How To Write One Song [is] a smart, funny, relentlessly practical guide to discovering the secret songwriter within."
-GQ

"Frank, philosophical yet accessible."
-People

"In this succinct guide, the Wilco (and before that, Uncle Tupelo) frontman walks you through pretty much every question you might have about writing a song of your own. From anxiety that you'll suck-you totally will, at first-to the fear of exposing your inner feelings-accept it, writing songs means getting vulnerable-Tweedy helps you get out of your head and in front of your notebook or voice recorder. We found ourselves highlighting and adding bookmarks."
-Apple (Best Books of October)

"In four carefully crafted sections, renowned songwriter, musician, and performer Tweedy explains the mysteries of the 'ephemeral' process of a writing a song, from inspiration to process, suppressing one's annoying ego, and disappearing in the work .... Observing Tweedy's glowingly creative mind at work throughout this seriously fun book is truly illuminating."
-Booklist
