Born to Run

Born to Run - Bruce Springsteen One of the best autobiographies I've ever read. A wonderful book whether your a fan or not, but even more so if you are. His prose will remind you of his best lyrics and ballads. What struck me was the honesty with which he presents himself and the self-analysis he brings to his story. A fascinating look into creative process and challenges as well, for creative people of all types, not just musicians.
