As I was reading the book, I was also looking for the songs and playing them on different media. It was nice to have a guided introduction to the music of Bob Dylan, and I definitely enjoyed reading it with a background soundtrack. Being such a short book, there are many things and topics that are only narrowly touched upon, but overall, I would suggest this book as a great introduction to his life and work.
