"An unprecedented combination of lyrical eloquence, musical mastery, and sheer unbridled, unadulterated joy" is how Jon Stewart described award-winner Bruce Springsteen at the televised Kennedy Center Honors in 2009. Impressive praise, one might say, for a self-taught guitarist who got his start playing small clubs on the Jersey coastline in the late sixties. Peter Ames Carlin's biography of "The Boss" helps translate his awe-striking stage persona into a human being who exists even beyond that final, late night encore. Fellow Springsteen biographer Peter Alterman praised this as "a Bruce bio like no other. Carlin's dogged research, tough-minded prose, and above all, ability to draw out the previously private thoughts of almost everyone involved in this remarkable story combine to transform much of what we thought we knew of Bruce."
