Forget About Today shows a side of Bob Dylan that most people—from fans to skeptics—have never seen. Rather than another gossipy account of his romances, finances, or family, journalist Jon Friedman offers a new perspective on Dylan’s revolutionary and enduring legacy through an intimate look at the mystery behind Dylan’s success.

Bob Dylan has been a pop culture mainstay for more than 50 years as a poet, songwriter, and performer. Yet from his decision to go electric while everyone clung to his folk roots to his shocking appearance on a Victoria’s Secret commercial, critics have predicted Dylan’s demise every step of the way. Each time, he’s proven legions of doubters wrong, never letting anyone keep him from accomplishing goals—on his terms.

Featuring exclusive insights from Dylan’s most trusted confidants, Forget About Today provides a unique look at Dylan’s life and career while it distills valuable advice from one of the music world’s most revolutionary artists and entrepreneurs.

As a Dylan fan I was very much looking forward to this book. I am familiar with the author, as I have enjoyed his commentary on Market Watch, etc. Unfortunately the book was a major disappointment. Rather than offering any new perspective on Dylan's life and career, it was the most redundant, repetative read in memory. Each and every chapter dealt with how Dylan has continually re-invented himself and has never been satisfied with the status-quo. Any casual fan already knows this. It actually felt like I was reading the same chapter over and over. This book requires no more than perhaps one hour to read cover to cover. Don't waste your 60 minutes!

Felt the author rambled on about basic common Bob Dylan knowledge and/or basic common sense approaches to life that Dylan incorporated into his life. Not one revealing item about Dylan that I did not already know and I'm not an avid Bob Dylan follower, just a music fan who thought this book might be interesting, which it was not.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Ok, if you don't know much about Dylan 16. August 2012

I wish I didn't impulse buy this book. If you don't know much about Dylan but are somewhat interested and like a self help style, this may be a good start; but if you've read Chronicles, seen No Direction Home or pretty much any well done thing about him, there would be little reason to read this book. The inferences he makes are very simple and repetitive and don't cover any new ground or offer any insights a reasonably intelligent person would not get from just paying attention to Dylan himself. It was ok but I was expecting more.

1.0 von 5 Sternen His reach outstrips his grasp 27. August 2012
Von lee morgan - Veröffentlicht auf
This slight book has earned a distinction as being one of the weakest ever written about Bob Dylan. Friedman's Dylan as "self help guru/ life coach" proposition fails miserably as a construct. In some places it's downright laughable, at other junctures moving beyond borrowed interest to sheer irrelevancy. And the writing itself is flat, repetitive and simplistic. The best thing I can say about this book is that skimming it at a bookstore will tell you everything you need to know from it -- next to nothing. While the author may be obsessed with his subject, this obsession certainly hasn't translated into anything worth anyone's time or money. Skip this one, it's headed for the remainder bin. a real black eye for Penguin, generally a quality publisher.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Don't Forget About this Book 12. August 2012
Von K. Baker - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
As a life-long follower of Dylan I have read many (I doubt most) of what has been written about the man and his music. Friedman has gone where none of the others have gone and provided insight into Dylan and his influence on not just the music world, but our world as a whole. He provides a well thought out narrative of the life and times that Dylan has waltzed through and given readers a context which we can each relate to our own journey. It is not a book written to impress us with the writer's deep analysis of why Dylan is Dylan, rather it is written by a man who understands the relationship Dylan has to each of us even if it is indirect. Friedman certainly knows the life and times of Bob Dylan, but he is not trying to flaunt an academic twist on a man whose life defies definition and explanation. I have enjoyed reading a book about Dylan that talks to the everyday fan who has a unique relationship with the Dylan mystique. Friedman understands that Dylan is not one thing to everyone and that he is many things, all different, to many people. Well done Jon and I hope you have another book in store for us about the most influential person of the 20th and 21st century.
