5.0 out of 5 stars Dave Masciotra has successfully and powerfully finished "Working on His Own Dream", May 13, 2010
This review is from: Working on a Dream: The Progressive Political Vision of Bruce Springsteen (Paperback)
Well I can say with all honesty that I have NOT read over 80 books on or about "The Boss"...(hell there can't even be that many about Jesus Christ... can there be?) But I have read "Working on a Dream: The Progressive Political Vision of Bruce Springsteen" and it is a comprehensive and very passionette study...putting it in the simplest of terms..this book is about Bruce Springsteen's concern and love for his fellow man. Not only that, Dave Masciotra's in depth study and history about Sprinsgteens political views are exciting and quite educational. As a musician I have not read a book like this about any of my other musical heroes other that the typical..."wild and crazy lifestyles" dime novel docudramas you can purchase at any magazine rack in town. Many people think that Bruce's political views exploded after 9/11, but I realize now, after reading this book that his voice has always spoke of the common man ..the plight of the underpriviledged and hope for the hopeless. That's putting it mildly. I can also relate to Daves recognizable musical love and affection for the Boss... And rightfully so..what better way to get Springsteen's political views out there than to research, study, and write about one of your own heroes who you trust and believe in? Well done Dave! This book is heart-felt not a political rant. I encourage all, and especially my musician brothers and sisters out there to pick up Dave Masciotra's book and be inspired as a musician to play your clubs and venues with an attitude of change and service to your fellow man...in other words...sing your songs,that they may make a difference and inspire enough to pay it forward.
