    Bruce, I fucking love you. That was amazing."June 1, 1985, Slane Castle, Dublin, Ireland (Slane is NOT in Dublin, Bruce), our first stadium show ever Slane joined a rising number of our other performances to attain "legendary" status and, despite my distraction, turned out to be a solid show. On the streets of Dublin, it is often mentioned that if you were there, you were there. I was certainly there."I was there too.My first "rock concert"!31 years ago. I have the tickets and the t-shirt to pr [...]

    Bruce Springsteen. The Boss. One of the world's most iconic musicians whose career spanned four decades. He brought us so many great songs - Dancing In The Dark, The River, Radio Nowhere, Streets of Philadelphia, Darkness on the Edge of Town, Sad Eyes, Secret Garden, Death To My Hometown, Born In The USA, to name a few. He won an Academy Award for the song Streets of Philadelphia. He owns twenty grammys. He's such a freaking overachiever.I've been waiting to get my hands on this book for so long [...]

    Your mission today, if you choose to accept to accept it Self, is to head to my nearest Barnes and Noble and make this masterpiece mine. MINE MINE MINE MINE!

    I listened to this from Audible read by Bruce Springsteen. Back in the 70s in very blue collared Cleveland, Ohio I first heard Bruce Springsteen. Darkness on the Edge of Town was the first vinyl LP I owned. I owned plenty of 8-tracks but albums were things you kept recorded to cassettes. Springsteen, although a New Jersey native, was the patron saint of my hometown. With the regularity of Big Ben ringing the hour, every Friday at 5:00 pm WMMS would blast Born to Run with every single one of the [...]

    4★My husband (also a musician) does not share my enthusiasm for Springsteen’s music (yes, this has caused a few tense moments in our marriage) but admits that he is a great songwriter. When celebrities who are not authors write a memoir they undoubtedly get help from ghost writers so I did some searching and learned that he worked on his book alone for seven years before seeking out a publisher. I was pleased to discover that his songwriting chops crossed over intact to authoring and was eng [...]

    I'm a huge Bruce Springsteen fan, so it would be hard for this not to be fun for me to read. I loved the stories of his childhood of near poverty, Catholicism, Freehold, NJ, his family, his awful father. Bruce's ambition, from the get-go, is fascinating. (As his desire for fame.) He is very honest and searching in this memoir--with thirty years of therapy to grease the wheels--and I found him to be quite articulate about his emotional landscape. He also takes a poignant look at depression and ge [...]

    18 hours is a lot of Bruce. To be fair, it's a lot of anyone, but there is no better way to experience this than on audio with Bruce Springsteen expressively telling his story in his perfectly gravelly voice. The beginning chapters were especially touching as he nostalgically described in detail his day-to-day upbringing with his extended family, his deep love for them, and his sense of attachment and loyally to his family, his friends, and his neighborhood. It's difficult not to admire his abil [...]

    A rock memoir like none other, a strange and extraordinary book that just might be counted as one of his greatest achievements. No, really.

    I am not a Springsteen fan (nor detractor). Before listening to this, I could have named perhaps one of his songs, though I'm sure I would have known more if I were played them. Yet when I heard his Desert Island Discs interview I was mesmerised by his personality, his voice, and his honesty (bbc/programmes/b0855znp). This man is not just a rock/pop/soul icon, he's interesting and has something to say. On top of all that, he has an incredibly warm, inviting tone, with a huskiness that suggests t [...]

    Filled from start to end with at least as many Jersey Shore references, shout-outs, legends and myths as his albums, both with and without the E Street Band, this 500+ page tome, a Big Book for the Boss, is a joy to read for the hardcore fan to the casual hits listener. Written in a prose that can be described as Ray Bradbury by way of rock ‘n’ soul journeyman, “Bruuuuuuuuuuce” captures, recreates and spins the famous and infamous events and inner thoughts in the magic life of a man whos [...]

    The beauty of Born to Run isn’t that it’s a biography of Bruce Springsteen, the beauty is that it’s written by Bruce himself. His spirit, his style, his nuances and his voice: the same things that draw us so tightly to his music, that make us cling so strongly to his words and sing them so loudly when no one’s watching (or in my case, listening!) and that serve as the links that allow us to see ourselves in verse after verse of his songs, are what ultimately make this book so great.A lot [...]

    3.5 StarsI only had one opportunity to see Bruce Springsteen in concert. It was at the Spectrum in Philadelphia during "The River" tour. I had been a fan of "The Boss" thanks in large part due to Ed Sciaky at WMMR. The concert remains one of my all time favorites. The energy! The chemistry between Bruce and the E-Street Band. This was especially evident between Bruce and Clarence "The Big Man" Clemmons. And the chemistry between Bruce and his fans.When I saw Bruce had written his memoir it was i [...]

    I desperately need my hands on this book and learn everything from my idol. Powerful voice and breath taking lyrics to unforgettable songs. I need more iconic musicians to write their autobiography and showcase the way on how they became famous and the journey it took for them to get where they are at now. I want all the Bruce Springsteen I can get!

    Now there's tears on the pillowdarlin' where we sleptand you took my heart when you left.Without your sweet kissmy soul is lost, my friendtell me how do I begin again?My city's in ruins.My city's in ruins.Bruce Springsteen was forever on the periphery of my awareness. Until the night he wasn't.There are moments in this life. All too infrequent instants that shatter the black ice covering the earth of this existence. There are lightning-quick seconds of deep needs met that part the veil and provi [...]

    So, so beautifully written and incredibly honest. I could hear Bruce's voice on every page. He has honored us with sharing this gift, this 510 page song.

    Wow. This is hands down one of the greatest memoirs I've ever read. The 500 pages breeze by in no time at all and I was sad when it came to a close. Bruce opens up about his struggles in childhood and how those things came to effect his adult life in both his career and personal relationships. He also, of course, goes into great detail about his rise from wannabe rockstar to full fledged Rock n Roll icon. His chapter about his relationship with Clarence actually had me tearing up.Bruce's honesty [...]

    4.5 stars.I'm a fan of Bruce Springsteen so I knew I had to read this one. This was wonderful and not just because I'm a fan and not just because I read a lot of autobiographies. This book was well done. It took more than a few years to write, and it shows. He took his time with this project. This felt honest and real. He didn't just show the the bright and shiny moments of his life. He opened up and let the reader in. I loved that. He was quite expressive and had an amazing way with words. I ha [...]

    Bruce Springsteen thoughtfully tells his story. Along with his personal reflections there is a lot here for future biographers and chroniclers of this period in rock history. He writes of his family (most riveting for me), his bands and how he formed them, the genesis of his songs and albums and about performing.Most autobiographers tell you their experience as a child, very few attempt to interpret their parents’ experience of the family. Springsteen does, particularly in the case of his moth [...]

    It may be impossible for me to review this book objectively, since Bruce has been my favorite rocker since 6th grade. I remember getting most of his albums as Christmas gifts, so his rise and career parallel my own life. What's more I've seen him almost a dozen times. AND, being Irish-Catholic from the Rust Belt, there is something in Bruce's Irish-Catholic music (with admixtures of Dutch and Italian) that speaks to me. Further, save a contrarian sister, the rest of my siblings (3 brothers, 2 si [...]

    Fascinating story gracefully told. My first rock and roll autobiography. I'm pretty much an anti-celebrity kind of guy. All my life I've loved music but have never been much for the personal details. I remember when Bruce broke out with the dual cover stories in Time and Newsweek, that led me to the music and I was a faithful fan buying every album from Asbury Park to Nebraska and Born in the U.S.A. I was a more occasional fan after that, going through my jazz, classical and country period. Then [...]

    "Writing about yourself is a funny business but in a project like this, the writer has made one promise, to show the reader his mind. In these pages, I've tried to do this."And The Boss certainly delivered! Gah, I cannot compliment this book enough. Springsteen writes his autobiography like he writes his music, with an honest voice and in the most beautifully stunning way. He has a way with words. They reach inside you and open you up, heart and soul.Reading about how Springsteen made it to the [...]

    Bottom Line: Bruce is honest, barebones, raw. It can't get any better than that. We all feel like he's our brother, especially if you're from New Jersey, and close to his age. But in this book, you'll discover, we didn't know everything, but we love him just the same. Ah, the family snapshots, not professional pictures, are priceless. Thanks Patti and Bruce.

    I wasn't even a Bruce Springsteen person but ended up reading this book anyway and I am now a convert. I haven't stopped listening to Bruce Springsteen since the book ended. Great story, well told, with great lines (naturally) and a fascinating lens into fame and loneliness. Now I'm a fan for life.

    #wow. #honest. #straight-forward. #point-blank. #amazing.“On a good day this is how we live. This is love. This is what life is. The possibility of finding root, safety and nurturing in a new season.” ~ Bruce SpringsteenThis must-read book is all about music, but it is also all about LIFE.It's about living a life of your choice and pursuing your dreams.It's about not giving up. It's about believing and trusting in LOVE and in family.It's about overcoming obstacles.And, more than anything els [...]

    I was urged by GR friends to listen to the audiobook narrated by The Boss himself and am glad I did. This man opens himself up, exposes his vulnerabilities, his flaws, and his demons. My favorite part of the book was Part I where Springsteen describes growing up, and how he got into music. His development as a musician took a great deal of work with many ups and downs. Perhaps his parents move to California when he was just finishing high school, leaving him behind, was an important catalyst for [...]

    Li este livro pelo enorme respeito e fascínio que tenho por este homem, enquanto artista e enquanto ser humano. Acompanhei sempre de (muito) longe a sua carreira mas fui sempre fã da música e da forma genuína como lida com o seu público. Pareceu-me sempre "o verdadeiro artista". Gostei muito de ler este livro e fortaleci a minha convicção de que Bruce Springsteen será sempre um ícone global apesar das suas vulnerabilidades.

    writing about yourself is a funny business. at the end of the day it's just another story, the story you've chosen from the events of your life. i haven't told you "all" about myself. discretion and the feelings of others don't allow it. but in a project like this, the writer has made one promise: to show the reader his mind. in these pages i've tried to do thatd do that he did. legions of devoted fans have spent decades teasing out the biographical details of bruce springsteen's life from songs [...]

    I've always liked Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band but was never a die hard fan. However, I do love a good memoir, which I heard this was, so I borrowed the audiobook. I'm very glad I did. Springsteen is not only gifted in storytelling through music, but also through traditional pen to paper. I'm always humbled and somewhat fascinated by those who can let others into the darkest, challenging, and most difficult parts of their life, leaving them vulnerable. I won't give anything away for t [...]

    Born to Run is a weird book.I don’t mean “weird” in any salacious sense - if Springsteen has ever indulged in much deviant behavior he doesn’t disclose it here. No, I mean that in a broader, more meta sense. The fact that Springsteen wrote this specific memoir just seems strange to me.A big part of that is because Springsteen himself is probably an odd person. For example, his prose alternates between bombastic enthusiasm and matter of factness; when he’s trying to articulate an abstra [...]
