You know how this and that and the other pop song could just reach out and touch you? Especially when you were 15 years old?

It turns out that that deep emotional resonance is as artificial as cherry flavoring, and is about as filling as a Pringles chip, for about the same reason. This book is a detailed how-to on how to manufacture such a song.

As one reviewer put it:
If I were king every child would receive a copy of this on their 16th Birthday because it would explain in the most soothing tones why popular culture touches them as deeply as it does, but also why it will never provide the answers to the questions they don't even know they're asking.
