Reviews
"A book that allows us to understand exactly why Bob Dylan is so celebrated . . . Riley ponders the lyrics, arrangements, and delivery of Dylan's work, from his first album in 1962." --Los Angeles Times

"Finally, in Tim Riley, Dylan has a critic who can at once place him in the Woody Guthrie toubadour tradition and probe the music knowingly." --BookPage

"Riley succeeds in making familiar materical seem fresh . . . . He offers many new, thought-provoking interpretations of songs, and his powers of description are potent." --Philadelphia Inquirer
