Bob Dylan transformed not only folk music, but rock 'n' roll as a whole: he brought the intellectualism of folk lyrics to a genre still dominated by romantic conventions. From the phenomenal commercial success of his 1965 epic, gritty single “Like a Rolling Stone” to Time Out of Mind, rock's first treatise on mortality, in 1997, Dylan has been fearlessly breaking new ground. The Mammoth Book of Bob Dylan explores his phenomenal legacy in over 500 pages of Dylan exposé!

Steer clear of this book. It is supposedly a compendium of writings on Bob Dylan, but the reality is, the editor, Sean Egan, has written 80% of the "essays" himself - and it is clear right from the beginning that Egan has no time for Dylan. This book is the pits!
