Editorial Reviews

Review

“Bob Boilen’s book gets at something real and rare about the power of music.” (New York Times Book Review)

“Part memoir, part criticism, and part music history . . . With Your Song Changed My Life [Bob Boilen confirms] that he’s one of the most versatile—and most fascinating—music writers working today. A” (Entertainment Weekly)

“NPR’s music guru asks dozens of artists about songs that inspired them. The answers are surprising and illuminating, and the roster of contributors is great.” (Billboard, Spring Music Book Preview)

“You might know Bob Boilen as the co-host of NPR’s “All Songs Considered”—probably the most popular and influential radio show and podcast about music. . . . [his] new book, Your Song Changed My Life is fascinating to music fans of all stripes.” (Omaha World-Herald)

“NPR music host Bob Boilen . . . throws a touch of charming memoir atop interviews with 35 musicians who share how they got turned on to music.” (THE WEEK)

“Boilen clearly loves his job and loves musicians, and this good-naturedness comes through in Your Song Changed My Life. It’s a short geek-out of a music book . . . [and] the best part is the surprise factor.” (LA Weekly)

“Since 2000, Boilen, creator and host of NPR’s All Songs Considered, has featured new and established singers of all genres on his popular online music show and . . . [his] warm, engaging voice pervades this treat for music aficionados.” (Kirkus Reviews (starred review))

“Bob Boilen’s Your Song Changed My Life . . . is [a] conversational oral history, and given the breadth of contributors, it’s one you’ll be able to pick up repeatedly to grab a slice of which songs influence some excellent artists.” (Irish Times)

“Entertaining and moving, evoking emotions as diverse as the artists Boilen interviews. Each vignette is constructed with obvious love and dedication . . . gentle, intimate, funny and, at times, heartbreaking.” (Daily Californian)

“Equal parts touching, surprising, and inspiring . . . Boilen’s book could be a delightfully quick read, [but] you are better off rewarding yourself with due diligence.” (The Nerdist)
