Springsteen on Springsteen offers fans an extensive look at the artist's own spoken words over the past four decades, via Q&A-formatted articles, speeches, and features that incorporate significant interview material. No one is better qualified to talk about Springsteen than the man himself and he's often as articulate and provocative in interviews and speeches as he is emotive onstage and in recordings. While many rock artists seem to suffer through interviews, Springsteen has welcomed them as an opportunity to speak openly, thoughtfully, and in great detail about his music and life. Moreover, Springsteen simply enjoys talking with people, and you can sense that from the material in this book. He is willing to speak with great candor, humor, and poignancy about his personal life and has talked in detail about his marriage, being in therapy, his parents, and fame. This volume starts with interviews from 1973, when he was earning $75 a week, and follows him up until 2012, when he had achieved almost unimaginable wealth and worldwide fame. The book features a foreword by singer/songwriter Elliott Murphy, a longtime Springsteen cohort; and photos by Frank Stefanko, who produced the covers for Darkness on the Edge of Town and The River. It contains more than half a dozen of Springsteen's speeches at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, political rallies and elsewhere, plus interviews with such well-known figures as TV's Charlie Rose, Ted Koppel, and Brian Williams; novelist Nick Hornby; and actor Ed Norton. Fans will discover hidden gems from small and international outlets, and radio and TV interviews that have not previously appeared in print, along with some material that has not been available in any format until now. This is a must have for any Springsteen fan.

From the Back Cover:

"A remarkable journey across the arc of a singular career--sometimes harrowing, ultimately heroic, revealing a tremendous strength of character as the Boss stayed true to his ideals, even in the face of what he calls 'catastrophic success.' A great read about a genuine American hero. If you're huntry to learn about the true soul of this remarkable man, look no further: it's all here."--Paul Zollo, author of Songwriters on Songwriting "Bruce Springsteen has been interviewed around the world on radio and television and by newspapers, fanzines, and general-interest and music magazines. Many of his most engrossing conversations are housed in this book. Fans should welcome this valuable collection. I know I do."--Harvey Kubernik, author of Canyon of Dreams: The Magic and Music of Laurel Canyon  "A great collection. The only other way to experience this much of Springsteen's 'voice' is to see him in concert."--Patrick Harbron, longtime Springsteen photographer "Springsteen on Springsteen is a fine and necessary addition to the literature on this incredible artist, performer, and man."--singer-songwriter Elliott Murphy, from his foreword
