It Ain't No Sin To Be Glad You're Alive

This highly praised celebration of Springsteen's artistry and influence is the most perceptive portrait yet of the remarkably gifted musician who, since the media anointed him the future of rock 'n' roll in the mid-1970s, has redefined the image of the rock star and emerged an authentic American hero - a man to whom millions of loyal fans look as a voice for their yearnings, hopes, fears, and dreams.

"A well-researched, passionate, musicologically informed and politically astute appreciation of the great rock 'n' roll artist."
-- E. L. Doctorow
