Caryn Rose paints a definitive portrait of Bruce Springsteen's current relationship with his European fans (and the fans with him) in Raise Your Hand: Adventures of an American Springsteen Fan in Europe. Rose's encyclopedic knowledge of Springsteen's music and mythology combined with her keen critical eye and estimable storytelling skill make this a must-read for any music fan. --David Gutowski, Largehearted BoyYOU'LL LIKE THIS BOOK IF: You can't get enough Bruce, you've always been curious about the European concert experience or you want to compare her observations with your own. This is not the upcoming Peter Carlin Ames epic biography, "Bruce." This is one experienced, educated fan's experience. --The Record/northjersey.com
