REVIEWS

“Carlin’s exhaustively researched portrait of rock and roll’s working-class hero delivers everything a fan could wish for.”

—PEOPLE

“Interviews with bandmates, family members and exes paint an unflinching portrait of the rock icon. … Dives into Springsteen’s personal life in unprecedented depth. … No previous biographer has uncovered as much about Springsteen’s family.”

—ROLLING STONE

“An astute, engaging account.”

—USA TODAY

“BRUCE delivers. … Carlin gets across why Mr. Springsteen has meant so much, for so long, to so many people.”

—NEW YORK TIMES

“An honest portrayal of the rock & roll legend.”

—ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY

“Carlin delivers the book Springsteen fans have been waiting for.”

—NEW YORK DAILY NEWS

“Do we need another Springsteen biography? The answer, here, is yes, thanks in large part to Carlin’s tireless reporting, which helps straighten out some of the lore-laden stories of Springsteen’s early years in New Jersey, and further illuminates his later struggles with depression.”

—BOSTON GLOBE

“There are probably more books about Bruce Springsteen than there are about any other rock star of his generation. But until one comes out with the words ‘By Bruce Springsteen’ on the cover, BRUCE will be the definitive one.”

—STAR-LEDGER (NJ)

“The Boss comes into human-scale focus.”

—VOGUE.COM

“You can pretty much sweep all those other Bruce books to the side. This one is the real deal. … A fascinating and even inspiring read … buoyed by personal interviews with, well, everybody.”

—BLOGNESS ON THE EDGE OF TOWN

“Not just must reading for Springsteen fans but anyone who appreciates music. It is meticulously researched and highly readable. It is essential and a definitive insider look at one of the most complex and intriguing artists in American music.”

—TUCSON CITIZEN

“Definitive in its scope and detail.”

—KANSAS CITY STAR

“Carlin is an effective, unstuffy storyteller.”

—SAN ANTONIO EXPRESS-NEWS

“The definitive story of his life. … A detailed rendering of the man rather than the icon, with all his flaws and strengths.”

—TOLEDO BLADE
