    I was so excited to read this book. The description sounded so inspiring. I was very disappointed, however, to find that the words to the songs written about in the short stories did not appear in the book. I knew some of them and those stories were very interesting. But when I did not know of the song or could not remember the words I finally gave up reading those stories. It made me wonder who edited this book and why they had not realized that there was a very large "hole" in the book that would leave readers unsatisifed and wishing they had not spent the money for the book.
