This book is full of fabrications and outright lies. Do not contribute to Weberman's psychosis. Dylan never made a pact with the devil. On 60 minutes he emphatically stated he pact was with the "Commander-in-Chief of this world and the next." That can only mean God. There are so many good to great Dylan books out there for you to choose, don't let this guy make a buck off this BS. Make him starve, or at least get a real job. Something he hasn't had his entire pathetic life of going thru Dylan's garbage. If you want to hear the phone conversations you can download them for free off the DylanNL.nl website. A.J Weberman is a Hack! Not even one star. Less than zero.

I bought this book on the recommendation of Amazon.com. Why this book would be recommended to a Bob Dylan fan is completely beyond me.
A J Weberman is the "person" who ran Dylan out of the Village. He led Demonstrations at his town House on McDougald Street, and even went through Dylan's Garbage. If I had known it was AJ Weberman who did those things I would never have Purchased "The Devil and Bob Dylan".
I wonder if Weberman has spent any time in a mental Health Facility? Accusing Bob Dylan of making a Pact with the Devil?! Sounds Crazy to me.
I haven't seen any reviewer remark on factual errors in the Book. 1. The Author confuses the Songs "Where are You Tonight", and "Absolutely Sweet Marie". 2. AJW says that Dylan wrote "The Weight". Robbie Robertson is listed as the Author of "The Weight". But as detailed in Levon Helm's Auto Bio, the song was probably a result of collaboration of The Band members . 3. Weberman Quotes "Message to Mary". "Message to Mary" was an Everly Brothers Hit, probably written before Bob ever wrote a song. 4. He brings up the rumour that Lorre Wyatt wrote "Blowing in the Wind". He says he doesn't believe that rumour, because of the white racist sub-content of the song! But, he doesn't tell the True Story, which is that Wyatt saw an advance copy of the lyrics in "Broadside", then did the Song at a HS Talent show, before Bob's Version was released. And then claimed he had written the song.
And Weberman considers himself a Dylanologist?
Save yourslf a lot of time and aggravation and don't Buy this book.
AND, Yes, I read all of its approximate 500 pages.

A.J. Weberman does a very good job here. While each reader will have to make up their own mind as to
if they feel his interpretations sound plausible, it never the less is an interesting work. There can be no
doubt that Weberman cares deeply about his subject, and has put a tremendous amount of time, research,
and yes, even meditative thought into the writing and production of this book. That effort alone deserves to
be applauded, and even if you find you disagree with it's premise, it's certainly a useful book, as far as being
a teacher for thinking out of the box creatively. I give it five stars.

Sure Dylan isn't perfect, nor are 99.999% of people in the world. It doesn't mean he made a deal with the devil for fame. Consider a basic thing: Dylan converted to Christianity around 1979 and was heavily religious and Christian, and regularly spoke in favor of it at concerts etc. Even though he became less fervent and less evangelical, he still believes in Christ, and referred to him as our "Lord" in an interview in Rolling Stone in 2012. If he truly had made a deal with the devil earlier in his life, he would have a number of times warned people to avoid the same, e.g. he would have said a number of times things like, "I can speak from experience that it's a bad idea to make a deal with the devil. Don't do it." He was already being pretty ridiculed by many for being Christian, and didn't care about the ridicule, and he's never really cared much about what people think about what he says, so he would not have balked at saying something if it was true and he thought it could help someone. Even if in passing he admitted to doing some sinful things in the past in his earlier years (as we've all done), that doesn't mean he made a deal to sell his soul to the devil. Avoid this book.

If you believe National Enquirer stories like Woman Born with Seven Eyes in Oprah's Basement or Child Regurgitates Pizza: Looks Like Jesus on the Cross, then you will love this book. The author has all the talent of a National Enquirer writer with even less personal integrity and lower standards of truth. Genius or not, there is little doubt that Dylan is "human, all too human" as Nietzsche wrote, with plenty of quirks and imperfections. This book is nothing but an fetid swamp of exploitive garbage, its author little more than slime.
