I thought I was a huge Bruce fan, but I learned so much about the music from this book.
This book is deeply layered delving into the music process, Bruce's songs, his torment and his absolute glee that his music touches so many people.
The author's vocabulary is good and even stimulating at times (although the word "interlocutor" is used a bit too much).
