An outstanding bio that lives up to expectations,
This review is from: Bruce (Hardcover)
A very well crafted and comprehensive book in which the author describes the family history and dynamics and the effect that they had in shaping the young Bruce Springsteen. The book also captures the drive, vision and almost ruthless singleminded purpose that propelled Springsteen to international stardom at a young age, and the continued evolution of Bruce's career and personal life. Carlin provides the perspectives of many people in Springsteen's personal and professional life, including Springsteen himself. Although Springsteen and others gave the author much in way of personal access, the book is nevertheless an honest account of Springsteen's life and career. I highly recommend this book!
