    1. Now, a two star review for this book is not a two star review for Bruce Springsteen. It's a two star review for this book.The way I see it, rock and roll began as a music of sensuality and power, full of sinful swagger, racial tension, and illicit seduction. Later, it became so many more things -- from the innocent harmonies of the Beach Boys to the Satanic power of the Rolling Stones, from soulful grooves of Motown to the laid back jams of the Grateful Dead. And among those things, most certain [...]



    2. Even though I'm reading Marsh's Two Hearts, which includes both of his Springsteen books and a fair amount of new material, I wanted to review Born to Run on its own. In the intro to Two Hearts, Marsh writes about having set out to create a new genre, the "Rock Book," incorporating biography, fan's notes, photos (sadly not reproduced in Two Hearts), music biz book, discography, and tour chronology. BTR did/does all that, but most importantly, it captures the energy of Springsteen's emergence, th [...]


    3. This must've been fantastic in 1978 when there was no other books on Bruce Springsteen. 40 years later, it's pretty rudimentary stuff that you'd learn all of and more in any other book on the Boss.


    4. A fun, quick bio on Bruce up to the release of The River. There have been many more bios since this release (Peter Ames Carlin version is much better and more comprehensive), but it's still a nice read if you want to remind yourself of why Springsteen is so great. Enjoyed the transcribed stories from Bruce's stage banter and thought the author did a really good job of analyzing the lyrics/meaning behind each of the five albums covered in the book. Didn't like his rock criticism (and cynicism) de [...]


    5. If you are a Springsteen fan, this is a must read. Lots of inside stories and personal info that I had not heard before. It is a very long book.


    6. What a life and demons, your upbringing does have an impact on who you are and what you become. Bruce fought all the way and even with all his riches he has demons.


    7. As I prepare for the publication of my second book in October 2012, I turned for inspiration to Bruce Springsteen - through the words of the incomparable Rock & Roll critic Dave Marsh.Disclaimer: Bruce's music has accompanied me for decades. I've been to dozens of his shows; witnessed many from the front row - elbows on stage. This book was not read without bias.Marsh tells the story of Bruce's life, his art, life on the road, and the challenges of being true to himself while trying to share [...]


    8. A fantastic rock & roll bio that covers Bruce's career from its very begginings up until his double album The River. Dave Marsh presents his subject matter expertly. If any fault can be found, it's the fact that this isn't really a biography. The reader winds up learning little about the person Bruce Springsteen but much about the musician Bruce Springsteen.


    9. Loved this book. I remember being surprised to learn how hard Bruce was on himself and those in his band and his circle. The hours and hours and hours spent to produce a perfect cut for every song on Born to Run. Wow. He wouldn't have been easy to work with/for - you would really have to be totally into the vision and the passion to stick it out. But the album was incredible!


    10. Tons of great photos in this book along with the story of how it all began. What a shame it would have been if this story didn't have a happy ending, for Bruce and for all of us fans. Baby, we were born to run!!!


    11. A good, thorough book. Would've given it 5 stars but I didn't like how the author bashes several other artists to make a point about how good and different Bruce is. Bruce wouldn't approve.





    12. not finished, no time, plus it dragged quite a bit in places. I didn't get a good feel for the start of Bruce Springsteenbut the early pictures were great!
