When the going gets tough: Flash review of Born to Run

Born to RunBorn to Run by Bruce Springsteen

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book was the only thing that got me through the 2016 US election.

I loved reading about his relationship with Clarence Clemons and his father; his career in the 70’s and 80’s. Big take away from this book is his dedication to his craft, practicing what you love until you literally pass out, and picking yourself up after you fail.

The chapters about “Born in the USA” were pretty enlightening as well.
