really liked it

Well, I'm still reading this book and while I struggle with thinking JB may have one of the larger egos in the folk world, it's still pretty inspiring to read about her unflinching devotion to pacifism and her dedication to living out the principles she sang about--unlike, say, Bob Dylan, who (understandably) gets a pretty scathing treatment in the book. My mom says maybe you have to be a bit of narcissist to make a big difference in the world, and maybe she's right. But any folksinger who went and sat and sang in bomb shelters in North Vietnam during the heaviest bombing in 1972 has my admiration.

Plus I met her and she winked at me last week. No joke. And I was already reading the book before that happened!
