This is how music writing should be. Maybe the worst part of being a music fan is having to slog through overlong, over-researched, over-ripe biographies with big dusty titles, especially during the inevitable opening 200 pages that start with the great-grandparents and drag you yawning all the way to the first album. (I once read a Beach Boys book that began with the pilgrims coming to America.) Load up your bonfires; Rough Guides are the way of the future.

THE ROUGH GUIDE TO BOB DYLAN is the perfect counterpart to his Chronicles. It's packed with info about the man and his music, gives us the nitty-gritty details and background to his songs, fills in the gaps in Dylan's book and provides critical assessment to all things Dylan. This compact guide will serve very well both with the budding and blown out Dylanologist.

the many layers of Bob Dylan's life ... in 200 pages. Then there's hundreds more pages on his music, movies, other references, etc. Possibly the best Rough Guide in the music series I've read.

Simple, straightforward and cleanly written. This is like a grouping of wikipedia entries all in one bound edition. Nothing relevatory, but fun bedtime reading about Dylan.
