If you're a Bruce Springsteen fan, or just like Rock and Roll, you might want to take a look at Days of Hope and Dreams: An Intimate Portrait of Bruce Springsteen by Frank Stefanko. Singer Patti Smith suggested Bruce contact Stefanko to have photos taken, some which ended up on album covers. The book is primarily a collection of photos taken of Bruce in New Jersey and Manhattan. Stefanko tried to capture the many moods of the artist. During this process, he learned a lot about Springsteen's creative process and his philosophy. He also got to see Bruce interact with members of the E-Street Band. It gave me a somewhat different view of celebrity and fame. I came away feeling like Bruce Springsteen is now a close friend! There is very little text, but the strength of the book lies in the illustrations. I finished it in a weekend, and enjoyed it thoroughly. Then again, I'm a big Springsteen fan!
