WE NEED SOME DAVID BOWIE AND STEVE PERRY!!!!!!STAT!!!!!!
Don't know what was wrong with the other readers. Dolan's book can get a bit ponderous at the time, but I appreciated the overview of the Boss's life and work, without the second-guessing or hero worship which tends to feature heavily in Springsteen bios. I enjoyed this book and would recommend it to others.
I have to agree with the other post. I have read a lot of biographies and many about Springsteen. I am an avid reader but this book just bores me to death. If I could rate it less than 1 star I would.
The others were right. About as interesting as watching bumpers rust
