Forget About Today: Bob Dylan's Genius for (Re)invention, Shunning the Naysayers, and Creating a Personal Revolution

by Jon Friedman

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.

Bob Dylan has been a pop culture mainstay for more than 50 years as a poet, songwriter, and performer. Yet from his decision to go electric while everyone clung to his folk roots to his shocking appearance on a Victoria’s Secret commercial, critics have predicted Dylan’s demise every step of the way. Each time, he’s proven legions of doubters wrong, never letting anyone keep him from accomplishing goals --- on his terms.

Featuring exclusive insights from Dylan’s most trusted confidants, FORGET ABOUT TODAY provides a unique look at Dylan’s life and career while it distills valuable advice from one of the music world’s most revolutionary artists and entrepreneurs.
