The Map and the Territory is a funny book. I'm about half way through it. Juxtaposing pictures of maps and the territories represented is something my wife and I did many years ago. We should have fucking exhibited that! One example is my twitter profile pics. Unlike Jed Martin, I more often found the map less interesting . . .

Can someone get their hands on Bebe's book and make that the next selection?

I might have missed it, but what's your take on Born to Run Mike? Currently reading it and I'm up to when he becomes famous around the "Born to Run" album. Lots of "power of rock and roll" talk and lots of exclamation points. Not as revealing as I had thought it would be, given the interviews I heard last year. My favorite part so far is his description of the gig circuit he worked with his high school bands (the "rah" gigs vs. "greaser" gigs).

I didn't find Born to Run particularly revealing. The only revelation for me was that Springsteen has suffered from depression and anxiety over the years. I found the straight forward bio, Bruce, much more interesting.
