It creates some sympathy for Mike Appel. He believed in Springsteen, invested significant amounts of his own money.But he did not reap the rewards to the extend he felt he deserved.
Yet the book also creates an empathy for Springsteen. He was a young, talented artist with impressive native intelligence. Yet he clearly did not understand the rules and expectations of Contract Law. He wanted to be a musician and signed without reading. The terms were not unconscionable but as Springsteen writes: "I risked, I paid, but I won too."
The use of deposition testimony provides remarkable insight. But deposition testimony is so dangerous, it should be banned to only those who acknowledge the bias. Springsteen clearly did not understand the law.
Fascinating vignette on how the suit was resolved. Judge had the wisdom of Solomon.
Bought copies for my children to help them learn about the complexity of life.
Great and elegant sense of humor.
It definitely humanizes Mike Appel and he deserved a better shake than he got. but what other outcome can u expect from two hard driving obsessive personalities? ( kinda reminds me of the john huston movie: treasure of the sierra madre). Enjoy!
The book is well balanced and, of course, it has Appel's version of events. But it's not, by any meands, biased. The writer gives a balanced narrative of the vents that culminated ina a long legal battle that almost put Bruce's career to a ignominious halt.
A good and fast read (if you do not spend time reading the tons of legal papaers printed in the last part of the book!)
