Some fantastic reviews for Bruce Springsteen’s genre-defining autobiography, ‘Born To Run’.
“For the Springsteen fan, this book is the definitive commentary on every note he has played. For the rest of us, it is a road trip into the American soul.”
– The Times
“A heartfelt memoir… there is a fearlessness to his prose, a willingness to engage with his past, that chimes with his songwriter’s desire to give voice to the people around him.”
– The Sunday Times
“The musician’s memoir is as generous and open as his marathon live shows… Rock’s premier action hero has written a brave and engrossing memoir.”
– The Financial Times
“Pulls us into his life with the panache of a thriller writer… Springsteen writes humbly, personally, as though he and the reader are the last two people in the bar and neither are ready to put the cork back in the whiskey just yet. His writing, like his music, is a simple pleasure.”
– The Independent
“The best stories happen to those who are best equipped to tell them… ‘Born to Run’ is the most accomplished of the recent cavalcade of autobiographies by retirement-age rockstars. He has the storyteller’s knack for turning experience into narrative.”
– The New Statesman
