"I'm sort of doing what I want to do. I mean, not sort of what I want to do, I am doing what I want to do. Or what I believe I was put here to do."A spokesperson for a generation, Bob Dylan gave a voice to the young, and his words were, and still are, truly revolutionary. "Bob Dylan: Inspirations" conveys the spirit of the man and the inspiration he has brought to millions through his poignant music. This intriguing book is composed entirely of Dylan's own words. Photos of Dylan and captivating images illustrate his words beautifully: * "When I get involved in something, I get totally involved. I don't just play around on the fringe." * "I went over my whole life. I went over my whole childhood. I didn't talk to anyone for a week after Elvis died. If it wasn't for Elvis and Hank Williams, I couldn't be doing what I do today." * "I don't call myself a poet because I don't like the word. I am a trapeze artist." The book is filled with over 50 striking photographs in a thoroughly modern design for a unique look. Pull it out when you need some inspiration from the master.
This is a small book. I already had it because it came with a cd and was disappointed by the fact I already had it. But it is good anyways

LOOKS AREN'T EVERYTHING, BUT THEY HELP. THIS BOOK IS EASY ON THE EYE AND IT FEELS GOOD - ROBUST AND WELL-MADE. WHAT YOU GET IS A SERIES OF IMAGES, SOME OF DYLAN, SOME NOT, PAIRED WITH CHOICE QUOTES AND LYRICS FROM DYLAN'S VAST REPETOIRE. IT'S A SIMPLE FORMAT THAT WORKS REALLY WELL. THE IMAGE REPRODUCTION IS GOOD, THE PAPER QUALITY IS OUTSTANDING AND THE QUOTES ARE HILARIOUS, THOUGHT PROVOKING AND CHALLENGING - MUCH LIKE BOB DYLAN'S SONGS. I CAN'T FAULT THIS BOOK AT ALL, AND IT WOULD MAKE A GREAT PRESENT.
