A revealing new perspective on Bob Dylan’s enduring legacy – from one of the foremost experts on the Nobel Peace prize-winning artist.Forget About Today shows a side of Bob Dylan that most people – from fans to skeptics – have never seen. Rather than another gossipy account of his romances, finances, or family, journalist Jon Friedman offers a new perspective on Dylan’s revolutionary and enduring legacy through an intimate look at the mystery behind Dylan’s success.
