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.
