Editorial Reviews

Boston Herald
“Bob Spitz takes his place ... among the most able chroniclers of the many myths, poses and postures of the middle-class Jewish boy from Minnesota and his dogged and at times ruthless pursuit of superstardom.”
London Sunday Telegraphy
“The great strength of this biography, apart from the massiveness of Spitz's research, is its respect for Dylan's talent, and an understanding of his social and musical talent.”
Washington Post Book World
What one can get from this book is a sense of the terrific momentum of Dylan's life and work in the early and mid-60s, the period when Dylan made his mark and made a world: no other book captures it so well, understanding so well that this is the period that matters.— Greil Marcus
