Jon Friedman tells why he wrote this book which cites Bob Dylan as a self-help guru.
Why I Wrote “Forget About Today: Bob Dylan’s Genius for (Re)invention, Shunning the Naysayers and Creating a Personal Revolution”
Bob Dylan, a self-help guru?
Since Dylan burst upon the music scene in 1961, critics, pundits and fans alike have celebrated his remarkable skills as a songwriter, poet, vocalist and performer of folk and rock and roll music. While I agree with this assessment, I also believe, nonetheless, that it doesn’t quite do this man justice. He represents so much more to me than his work as an entertainer or his life as a musician and writer.
That’s why I wanted to write this book. I think Dylan can teach people life lessons based on his mysterious genius. He stands for longevity, the quality that we all hope to achieve in our careers. Can you think of anybody in your field who has thrived for fifty-plus years?
